Welcome to Building a Better Boyertown

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!

Come Celebrate the Grand Opening of the New Academy

September 7 at 12:00 pm

125 E. Philadelphia Ave. (Rt. 73) Boyertown, PA 19512

In February of 2010, the weight of  15 to 24 inches of snow collapsed Ellixson’s Tae Kwon Do Academy in the 100 block of East Philadelphia Avenue. 

Donnie Ellixson Jr., the owner of the building and the business, said the business had been in his family for more than 16 years.  Over the past few years, Ellixon’s Academy found a temporary home at Oddfellows, located at 35 East Philadelphia Ave., Boyertown.  But, on Saturday, September 7 at lunchtime — Donnie Ellixson and his entire Academy will be formally welcomed home.  Help us celebrate with the students, parents, and teachers of Ellixson’s Tae Kwon Do Academy and join us at the ribbon cutting.

Bob Wood’s Friday Art-ful Conversations a.k.a. ”Cheap Date” Nights are scheduled at Studio B for October and November 2013.

Bob has arranged an impressive series of artists and folks passionate about what they do.  We hope you’ll join him from time to time or every time.  There is no fee to participate, but donations are graciously welcome.  To learn more about this and other events at Studio B, please contact:

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!
