Building a Better Boyertown (BBB) is a non-profit organization formed in 2002. Boyertown, PA is a Main Street Community, received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and private donors to focus on downtown revitalization.
BBB staff and volunteers develop and accomplish tasks that maintain Boyertown’s historical heritage, promote downtown Boyertown and attract people to the community. They concentrate on business recruitment and retention and on providing technical assistance and grant opportunities for property and business owners in the Main Street District to make facade improvements enhancing the town's Victorian architecture.
Overall, Boyertown's approach to revitalization is comprehensive in nature. We are always looking for fresh faces and ideas to help us achieve our goals. Come join us, and the fun!
As the seasons change, we cannot help but notice some of the more obvious transformations: shorter days, cooler weather, the color of the leaves. Those who regularly shop at a farmers market may also notice the different varieties of produce for sale. With winter coming, we take a lesson from nature and go indoors. From November through May, we’ll be at The Other Farm Brewing Company (128 East Philadelphia Ave) Every 1st and 3rd Saturday from 10 am to 12 noon.
We are always looking for locally grown/produced items to feature at the Boyertown Farmers Market. Contact us if you’re interested in becoming a vendor.

The community is asked to supply their opinion on a series of standard perceptual questions about Downtown Boyertown. The purpose of this survey tool is to get a better idea of how people feel about common attributes that contribute to a “sense of place” within a community, and to guide Building a Better Boyertown with potential downtown revitalization strategies. The questions are based upon a matrix for what constitutes a “place” that was developed by the Project for Public Spaces. Here is the link to the Perceptions Survey: http://www.padowntown.org/current-perceptions-of-downtown-boyertown Thank you for participating in the survey. The survey will remain open until Friday August 2nd 2013 until 5 pm!
