About Us

Volunteer Organization

Main Street Woodbury, Inc. (MSWI) is an all-volunteer, non-profit, urban revitalization organization.   We are comprised of residents, merchants, property owners, and interested citizens dedicated to a vibrant, destination-style commercial district.   Using the four point Main Street approach, MSWI will work to advocate, support, and grow our district in order to provide a better experience for people who live, work, shop, and dine in this city. Main Street Woodbury focuses its efforts on downtown revitalization activities with an emphasis on Woodbury’s historically and achitecturally significant assets.  Our volunteers and four committees pursue this goal. We are proud to be a certified Main Street under the guidance of Main Street New Jersey.   This official recognition enables MSWI to have prominent voice in the ongoing effort to highlight and celebrate one of South Jersey’s oldest communities.

Why Do We Need Main Street?

We note with pleasure that the city of Woodbury is home to several community-based volunteer organizations working for the overall good of the city, in concert with local government – and we are proud to be among those groups.   The unique mission of Main Street Woodbury is that we are focused specifically on the business community along the Broad Street corridor (and the intersecting streets that support this corridor).   We believe that good business is good for everyone, and it is important that we fulfill our role to push for the best possible business environment in our downtown.

Why does Main Street work?

Our volunteers work with city and county governments, and with our fellow volunteer organizations, to systematically foster success for Woodbury’s business district.    There are hundreds of Main Street communities nationally, allowing Woodbury to draw on their experiences to benefit our redevelopment.   But mostly, Main Street works best when he have the greatest possible engagement of our volunteer base; when the people who believe they have a stake in the future of Woodbury offer their time and talents to fulfill the city slogan, “Arts.  History.  Home.”
