About Us

Our Mission

To create and sustain a vibrant downtown for all to enjoy.

Our Vision

We envision a lively and active downtown that the community takes pride in and improves the quality of life for all.

Our vision is a downtown that serves as the focal point of entertainment, shopping, and tourism for the community. Our downtown will be a place that generates pride among our residents and a sense of discovery for our visitors. Downtown Brunswick has a charm rooted in our railroad culture, canal history, river and mountain resources. People come from near and far to experience this special place.

Brunswick Main Street will be a catalyst in transforming the downtown area into a lively place where it may be common to see folks strolling the streets, shopping, dining outside, listening to music or walking down to the river. Downtown Brunswick will be the place that the community comes together to celebrate our heritage and to engage with downtown merchants throughout the year. With this vision, Brunswick Main Street strives to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives, works, and visits here.

Our Main Street

Main Street Maryland is a downtown revitalization program created in 1998 by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. The program strengthens the economic potential of Maryland’s traditional main streets and neighborhoods. Using a competitive process, Main Street Maryland selects communities who have made a commitment to succeed, and helps them improve the economy, appearance and image of their traditional downtown business districts.

Brunswick proudly received the Main Street designation in the spring of 2004.

Under the Main Street Maryland umbrella, we are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization with the mission of revitalizing downtown Brunswick as an attractive and lively city center. Main Street has a volunteer board of directors comprised of residents, business owners, and community leaders.

It employs one full-time manager to handle the administration and management of the program. Volunteers interested in revitalizing historic Brunswick carry out programs and activities.

Brunswick Main Street focuses on preserving our historic character and enhancing the image of downtown through four major avenues (Promotions, Economic Restructuring, Design, and Organization) to achieve our goals.
