OUR HISTORY

RVMS was established in 1985 as one of the first urban Main Street Programs in the nation, with the help of then City Councilor Thomas M. Menino and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Within its first three years, RVMS achieved great success in revitalizing Roslindale Village, with 33 façade changes, 43 commercial building rehabilitations, 29 net new businesses, and 132 net job gains—totaling over $5 million in new investments. Roslindale Village Main Street received a National Main Streets Urban Pioneer Award in 2006 for its revitalization efforts.

Today, Roslindale Village is a thriving commercial hub, with free public wifi in Adams Park, and a fabulous Farmers Market. And, there are now 20 Main Street Districts in the City of Boston. We are proud to have been the first one!

BOARD & STAFF

The RVMS Board of Directors is a working volunteer board comprised of residents, business owners and professionals in Roslindale. The Board provides a primary link to the community, working to build consensus and cooperation among stakeholders in the business district. The Board also provides organizational, administrative and financial oversight of Roslindale Village Main Street and raises funds to support the organization's programs and special projects.
