About Us – Blue Point Civic Association

About Us

The BPCC consists of a group of elected officers as well as a number of committee chairs working on projects important to the citizens of Blue Point.

The BPCC officers include:

Jason Borowski, President
Jason moved to Blue Point from Nassau County in June of 2016 and immediately fell in love with the charm and character of our hamlet. When the opportunity presented itself, he jumped at the chance to be part of an organization that promoted and helped to preserve that same charm and character. He is married with a daughter who attends 3rd grade at Blue Point Elementary. When not conducting official BPCC business, you can often find Jason in the stands at Citi Field, in his garage tinkering with his vintage BMW, or out enjoying the waters of the Great South Bay.

Alexander Wellems, Vice President
Alex is a 4-1/2 year resident of Blue Point and a 13 year resident of Long Island. Alex has a wonderful wife, Lauren, who is active in the running community and two great children, Julie, 6 and Matthew, 4. He enjoys tennis, basketball, piano and anything to do with the beach. Professionally, Alex’s background is in chemical engineering, operations, management and quality, which will bring a complimentary skill set to the research committee and the BPCC as a whole. Appreciative of the history, beauty, and neighborhood support of Blue Point, Alex wants to be part of positive action and change for our community

He is currently co-president of the Long Island Volkswagen Club and member of the Bayport- Blue Point Heritage Association.

James Powers, Sergeant at Arms
James grew up in The Village of Patchogue and had always loved his small town neighbor, Blue Point.  As a kid, he would ride his bike to Corey Beach and spend the day hanging with friends and eating at Flo’s. As an adult he was very lucky to find a partner who grew up in Blue Point and wanted to raise a family here.  They have three children and James is a very active member of the community. In addition to his roles within the BPCC, James is also a member of the Blue Point Fire Department, the Lions Club and current President of the Blue Point Elementary PTA.

Brittney Parrott, Corresponding Secretary

Outside of her responsibilities for the BPCC, Brittney holds a real estate license, and owns and operates an interior decorating company. Having four children keeps her on her toes, but also gives her the inspiration to be involved in the community. She is excited to be a part of an organization that is working to preserve the beautiful hamlet of Blue Point.

Kim Harrison
Kim lives in Blue Point with her husband Jim, and their three children. Originally from the Adirondack Mountains in upstate NY, she has lived on Long Island for 17 years and enjoys living so close to the Great South Bay.

No Re-Zoning

Regarding Seafield, the BPCC opposes irresponsible development and the zoning change that would be required from A1 – residential to NH-H – commercial health facility.  The location of the proposed Seafield treatment center is in the heart of a residential zone, and the required zoning change would set a dangerous precedent throughout the entire Town… read more
