The mission of Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. is to enhance the quality of life for residents of Ward 5 by initiating and cultivating housing, retail, employment, and recreation opportunities through effective partnerships with residents, community groups, government, corporations and institutions.
In previous funding cycles we described ourselves by the slogan, "Growing with Our Communities"-- a perfect description for an organization that grew from a struggling staff of 1 in 2000 to a forcefully driven and effective staff of 6 full-time and 2 part-time employees by the end of 2003. By advancing our capacity with highly capable talent, we have increased our production in every category. We are known to our development partners as a very functional resource and facilitator of our projects. From fostering MBE/FBE participation, making our inclusion rates among the highest in the County, to engaging community residents in the planning process - we have evolved beyond growing into ourselves to becoming the model for how a small high-tech CDC can maintain and manage the production equivalent of organizations twice its size.
Along with retaining an exceptionally talented staff, BBC is at the cutting edge of information management and internal protocol. Inspired by minimizing time spent towards administration, our computer systems include the highest level of technology equipped to manage digitally filed tracking systems, comprehensive multi-program budgets, GIS analysis, and data tracking programs.
This combination of highly capable staff and cutting edge information management systems afford BBC the ability to provide superior community planning, real estate development, and other supportive services to Ward 5 and the City of Cleveland.
