About the Blairstown Enhancement Committee

In the summer of 2014, members of the Blairstown Township Committee reached out to a small group of residents asking if they could help reverse the apparent decline of the Blairstown Village in hope of improving the town’s economic prospects. In response, the dedicated residents formed a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation called the Blairstown Enhancement Committee (BEC).  This group of volunteers is committed to making the Blairstown area a better place to live, visit and do business. In collaboration with its residents, business owners, township, schools, and other stakeholders, the committee’s goal is to create a thriving economy while still retaining the character and charm of the area. Members support this mission with their time, energy, skills or financial contributions to do great things for Blairstown.
