Congratulations to Building a Better Boyertown (BBB), Boyertown’s Main Street and community development corporation! BBB received a $1 million grant from the BB&T Economic Growth Fund of the Berks County Community Foundation to implement strategies outlined for downtown Boyertown in the Boyertown Vision & Action Plan.
The Boyertown Vision & Action Plan is a community visioning and implementation plan that seeks to bring new vitality and economic growth to downtown Boyertown, including new jobs, healthier existing businesses, new businesses, new housing, an expanded customer base, and more private investment.
As part of this effort with other consultants, Urban Partners conducted a market assessment, and assessed various development alternatives to identify their financial feasibility. Urban Partners also assessed financing resources available to facilitate the preferred development approach.
