The Foggy Bottom Association
The Foggy Bottom Association was formed by a group of citizens in 1955 and was formally incorporated in the District of Columbia on June 19, 1959, as the Foggy Bottom Restoration Association. The present name was formally adopted and ratified May 13, 1965. It was founded to enhance and protect the residential quality of the area and keep residents informed on matters affecting the community.

The Foggy Bottom Association holds nine monthly meetings each year with speakers of interest to the areas residents. The meetings are held every month (except for July, August, and December), usually on the last Tuesday. Attendance at FBA meetings is open to all residents of Foggy Bottom and the West End.
The objectives of the FBA are to further the civic, cultural, social and economic welfare of the Foggy Bottom/West End community; preserve and enhance the residential character of the community; and promote historic preservation in the area.
The physical area of the FBA approximates that of the Foggy Bottom/West End Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2A, i.e. the interior of the areas bounded by Rock Creek on the west, the Potomac River on the south; an eastern limit defined by an imaginary line drawn northward from the Potomac River to and along 15th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue to 20th Street, and again northward on 20th Street to N Street; and westward along N Street to Rock Creek.
