About Downtown

There are downtowns – and then there are Downtowns. Downtown Freehold has always been the nucleus for activity and enjoyment; Downtown Freehold continues after more than two centuries to be the central gathering place for Western Monmouth County.

In 1992, Downtown Freehold received a priceless gift of renewal and stewardship in the formation of The Freehold Center Management Corporation, the nonprofit entity established by ordinance to manage the municipality’s special improvement district. The Freehold Center Management Corporation is founded upon the recognition that Downtown Freehold is the heart of Freehold Borough, and Western Monmouth County. Downtown Freehold works on behalf of all those who live, work or invest in the Downtown to achieve the following goals: Foster the downtown’s economic development, Encourage the downtown’s revitalization, Preserve the downtown’s historic past.

In pursuit of these goals, Downtown Freehold is committed to inviting and collaborating with all members of the public and private sectors who share this vision to build a Partnership that creates and implements an action-oriented plan to realize these goals.

Downtown Freehold is comprised of dedicated professionals who pledge their efforts, ideas and time to sustaining a pro-active organization that addresses concerns and challenges as they may arise, and to create a thriving and safe downtown for all to enjoy, all year long.
