Mission Statement

The mission of the Better Bennington Corporation is
to lead and support public and private efforts that enhance downtown
as the vital commercial and cultural heart of the 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 
  • An experience rich in American history and hometown heritage

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The Better Bennington Corporation(BBC) is committed to equity, diversity,
and inclusion and believes these fundamental principles inform and
strengthen the BBC's ability to respond to changing demographics and
the needs of all who live in, work in, or visit Downtown Bennington.  

Four Point Approach 

The BBC 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 Vitality, Promotion, 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  consider becoming a member of the Better Bennington Corporation. Membership brings benefits not only to you, but to our Downtown revitalization efforts.
