A Place For the Community At the Post Office Is In The Works!

Boonton Main Street's Information Kiosk has been inaccessible to the public since the area it is located in has been closed off indefinitely for safety reasons. Since then, BMS has been looking to relocate the Information Kiosk to an accessible and predominate location along Main Street, and the large open space in front of the Boonton Post Office seems to be the perfect location. This new location would allow visitors to be informed of events and business promotions in our downtown area, and then by adding historically-insipred seating and planters we could also transform this unused area into a community gathering and "information plaza" for Post Office customers, residents and downtown visitors alike.

We have been working with the Eagle Scouts to move the kiosk from the Boardwalk to the Boonton Post Office property. Our Eagle Scout, Hunter, will be coordinating with the BMS Design team the move of the kiosk, the re-furbishing of the kiosk,  and the installation of the kiosk and bench(es). 

We hope that you will contribute to this project and help improve the historic Boonton downtown district. Deadline for funding for this project will be June 2017.  If you are interested in being part of this initiative please donate here.
Help the Boonton Main Street Team Beautify Boonton! 

Sustained by contributions and volunteer support, Boonton Main Street Inc. is a non-profit dedicated to increasing awareness and foot traffic to benefit Boonton's historic downtown shopping district. We accomplish our mission through events (like First Fridays), advertising and resource sharing. 

Boonton Main Street receives its funding from various sources including our municipality, corporations, other non-profits and generous tax deductible gifts from individuals like yourself. In addition to the funds it takes to run our operation, we use these dollars to carry out our mission through fundraising, events, advertising and beautification. One example is the facade project that was completed at the bottom of Main Street (shown here) and was part of the volunteer led and building/business owner funded "Facade Program", one of the many programs that can continue with your support of the organization. Won't you please contribute so we can continue our mission for Boonton Main Street!
