What is PDIDA?

PDIDA stands for Pottstown Downtown Improvement District Authority

Pottstown’s Borough Council established the Downtown Improvement District Authority (PDIDA) to help revitalize and preserve the central business district. In 2011/2012 a new Board was establishedand a new Main Street Manager joined forces to move PDIDA forward.  We hope that over the next few years you will see some of the changes and can be Proudly Pottstown as the PDIDA Board and MSM is!  The Authority manages and coordinates activities to promote the improvement of Downtown Pottstown. Although PDIDA supports all activities and economic growth in Pottstown, it’s primary focus is the downtown district which encompasses High Street from Evans Street to York Street and businesses on Charlotte and Hanover Streets, just north and south of High Street.

The PDIDA Board is made up of volunteer citizens, business owners and property owners, who bring their time, creative energy and talents to improve the life of our downtown district. The Board meets the second Monday of each month at 830 a.m. in the PDIDA Office, located at 17 N. Hanover Street. If a holiday falls on a 2nd Monday – the PDIDA Board meeting will be held on the following day, Tuesday. Specifically for October & November 2013. Check back for further updates.

All of our meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to attend, especially if you are a current merchant or are considering locating your business in downtown Pottstown.


We also welcome new volunteers for the many projects and events that PDIDA plans throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering, please call 610 323-5400.
