The Brunswick Downtown Association is a member-driven, action oriented organization of businesses and citizens who work together for a better community. Our goal is to develop and maintain a vital, hospitable and lively downtown: a location for congregation, socializing and commerce and a source of pride for residents and neighbors.
The BDA coordinates downtown improvement projects, sponsors public programs and organizes special events. Annual membership fees and generous donations allow us to continue this important work. When you become a friend of the BDA, 100% of your contribution helps to build a stronger Brunswick.
