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!

jasonsfamilyJason was a wonderful father and husband.  On top of that, he was a tremendous friend, son and brother.  Jason always put a smile on the face of the people around him.  He was  a wonderful person and will be missed by thousands!  Though he is not here with us today, his name will be spoken on this earth for years to come.  When great people leave us, it is difficult.  Today is hard, and he has earned that by being who he was.   We miss you Jason!  To lend your support you may participate in the silent auction at the event on January 23rd, 7 p.m. inside The Other Farm Brewing Company.  You can also donate through GOFUNDME by clicking HERE.
