The South Main Street Alliance is thrilled to share with you the exciting revitalization of South Main Street in Phillipsburg, NJ. Over the years, South Main Street had fallen into disrepair. We brought about sustainable positive change through a collaborative effort between community organizations, residents, local businesses, and the government.

We started by thoroughly assessing the area and identifying areas needing improvement. We worked closely with the Norwescap and the NRTC and NPP teams to create a comprehensive plan for revitalizing the area, which includes everything from repairing cameras and improving lighting to attracting new businesses and adding events to the area.

Through community outreach and engagement, we were able to secure funding from various sources, including local and state governments, grants, and private donations. With this support, we've significantly improved sections of South Main Street and the surrounding streets, including improvements to Shappell Park by installing a paved area for visitors, adding planters, and enhancing the landscaping with benches and tables, and of course, paint. We also worked to attract new businesses to the area, offering incentives and support to entrepreneurs looking to open shops on South Main Street. The addition of new businesses brought new life to the area and helped attract more visitors.


To celebrate the revitalization of South Main Street, we organized a series of events and festivals to bring the community together and showcase the changes that had been made. These events were a huge success and helped to foster a sense of pride and ownership in the community.

South Main Street continues to thrive as a vibrant part of Phillipsburg, NJ. It's a testament to what can be achieved when the community comes together to make positive change happen. We are proud to play a part in this transformation and look forward to continuing to work with the community to build a brighter future for Phillipsburg.
