Beaver Falls is a city on the move!

With our recent Federal Opportunity Zone designation, there are even more benefits to investing in Beaver Falls as a new or existing business. The Beaver Falls Business District Authority is a volunteer board of business owners that are committed to the welfare of the commercial districts of Beaver Falls. They serve as an advisory board to City Council, plan collaborative marketing and events, and support business development within the city. The BFBDA works to support and promote a healthy local business environment for the Core Business District (11th Street to 16th Street), and the businesses of Beaver Falls.

The Beaver Falls Business District Authority hosts it public meetings at 6pm on the third Tuesday of every other month at the City Building (715 15th Street, Beaver Falls, PA 15010). Business and community members are encouraged to come and hear updates from the BFBDA.
