Sponsor Downtown 2030

Downtown 2030 is our initiative to lay out a collective community vision for the next wave of downtown Beverly’s future. Our Downtown 2020 project has been highly successful, with all goals met or in play. Successes include:

  • 0 vacancies in the Arts District
  • 2 historic theatres saved
  • 6 zoning changes adopted
  • 20 new retail / creative businesses opened
  • 450 new rental units built and permitted
  • $60MM in public infrastructure spending
  • $82MM in private commercial investments

Downtown 2030 is the next iteration of both big ideas and realistic actions to attain them. It is a 12 to 18-month project which was launched in December 2017. Funding is needed to:

  • Hire a consultant to guide our efforts
  • Do outreach to the entire community, neighborhood by neighborhood (surveys, focus groups, etc)
  • Create a searchable database of all input
  • Host dozens of committee meetings and community meetings
  • Package and communicate the results and the final plan

If you’d like to sponsor Downtown 2030, we will recognize you all year on our website and in our newsletters and social media. You would also have the option of being recognized at specific event(s), based on your level of giving.
