Making downtown the place to be.

Downtown Chambersburg Inc. is a nonprofit focused on downtown revitalization through implementing the four points of the Main Street Approach: Design, Economic Vitality, Promotion and Organization.


At least $30 million of investment is planned in the downtown over the next few years, not including small-scale investors. With baby boomers and millennials trending more toward walkable, less car-dependent ways of living, communities all across the country are reinvesting in their downtowns to create better linkages that leverage these lifestyle preferences. Chambersburg is no different.


Downtown Chambersburg Inc. (DCI), an affiliate of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce, recently completed a downtown visioning and master planning process that provides a framework for DCI and its partners to leverage the existing cultural, historical, retail and natural assets located in the downtown. The ultimate goal of this plan is to attract more private investment to the downtown.

Downtown Chambersburg is a crossroads where art and diversity unite, local food and diverse international cuisine combine, new ideas and traditional values converge, and vibrant and healthy lifestyles abound.

We believe in downtown and that its revitalization is critical to the quality of life of the greater Chambersburg area. Downtowns are the place to “be.” We are well-positioned to make downtown Chambersburg that place, and our vision guides us there.
