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!

We started off 2012 with a launch of our new website! We now have social media capabililies, posting opportunities and an awesome interactive calendar thanks to the creative engines of Blazing Systems and Word Press. Word Press is a dependable website framework partly because it’s built on stable, proven, pervasive technologies, including MYSQL and PHP. Blazing System’s deploys it as a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MYSqL., and PHP), for all you tech geeks our there. As you will see when you peruse the site, the framework produces appealing and effective venues that are easy to understand and navigate, and they are also highly functional with robust applications. Word Press is an Open Source, and over 17,000 applications have been developed for it. We invite your feedback so make sure to comment below.
