 Agendas and Minutes

The Community & Business Committee is a Borough committee comprised of business professionals, residents and Borough officials working together to create an environment that attracts targeted businesses, promotes our current businesses, and enhances the quality of life for residents and visitors alike.  The Committee members have been instrumental in helping to create a ‘Main Street Plan’ for New Britain Borough.  This plan includes new commercial and residential properties, such as the ‘University Village’ section of Butler Avenue near Delaware Valley University.

Small Business and Entrepreneurship Center

In cooperation with Delaware Valley University, the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Center (SBEC) provides a workspace for entrepreneurs seeking to commercialize new and innovative ideas.  The center also provide support to help existing local businesses grow along with professional mentoring.
