Greater Ashmont Main Street Program

Greater Ashmont Main Street (originally called St. Mark’s Area Main Street) was designated as one of Boston’s Main Street Districts in the summer of 1999. Our 1.1 mile commercial district on Dorchester Ave from Mercier to Melville includes more than 130 businesses in almost 400,000 square feet of commercial and institutional space, and serves more than 30,000 residents, workers and commuters. Each Main Street 501c3 organization receives financial and technical assistance and intensive training in the Main Street approach from the City of Boston Main Streets office and the National Main Street Center. In turn, each Main Street organization hires a full time Executive Director, raises matching funds, and implements its programs according to an annual work plan. We follow a four-point comprehensive approach that creates and sustains our mission: 1) community organization, 2) promotion, 3) design and 4) economic vitality.
