What is Allston Village Main Streets?
Founded in 1996 Allston Village Main Streets (AVMS) is a local non-profit organization that works to make Allston Village a better place to live, work, dine, shop, play, and own a business. We are a proud part of Boston Main Streets
- the nation's first city-wide multi district Main Street revitalization program that has been serving Boston's neighborhood business districts since 1985. We carry out our mission through the efforts of a volunteer Board of Directors and the work of three standing committees that focus on Desgin, Promotion and Economic Restructuring.
Since 1996 we have helped business owners access hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant funding from the City of Boston to improve storefronts, added 8 murals to the district that bring a sense of neighborhood pride and discourage graffitti, raised awareness about green business practices, started a farmers market, hosted more than 50 major events that have been attended by thousands, been a key voice in representing the business community, and so much more!
