Bennington Downtown Alliance

Purpose

The Bennington Downtown Alliance coordinates public and private efforts to maintain Downtown Bennington, Vermont as the commercial and cultural heart of the community.


Mission Statement

The mission of the Bennington Downtown Alliance is to Build, Improve, and Support a Vital Downtown that Benefits our Entire Community.


Vision Statement

Downtown Bennington is:

  • A center for business, civic activity, and downtown living for residents and visitors, personifying Vermont's small town "Main Street" character. 
  • Known for the charm and authenticity of its unique, locally owned shops, emphasizing Vermont-made products, crafts and antiques
  • A home for artistic and cultural activities
  • The hub of recreation and entertainment 
    opportunities
  • An experience rich in American history and hometown heritage


Four Point Approach 

The Downtown Alliance utilizes the Four Point Approach of Downtown revitalization. These four points mirror the standing Committees that accomplish much of the work and progress in Downtown. These are Design, Economic Development, Marketing & Promotions and Organization. 

Each of these areas strengthens the Downtown economy, fostering the continued use of existing commercial buildings while promoting and preserving Downtown Bennington's unique assets, charm, and history.

Downtown Bennington, Vermont is a Vermont Designated Downtown, making it eligible for various state programs and grants.

We encourage you to look around, find out more about our Downtown area and even consider becoming a member of the Downtown Alliance. Membership brings benefits not only to you, but to our Downtown revitalization efforts.
