About Boss Forward

In 2008, the Sinking Spring Borough Council created what was originally known as the BOSS 2020 Revitalization Committee. In 2021, we rebranded to Boss Forward as we felt it would best embrace our long-term goal of developing a central business district revitalization plan and improving the quality of life for all. We are dedicated to working with the community, area businesses, and our neighbors to make our borough a better place to live, work, and play.

Our Mission

The mission of Boss Forward is to strengthen the vitality of Sinking Spring’s downtown business corridor and surrounding areas. To improve our downtown, we will enhance the borough’s infrastructure, existing businesses, neighborhoods, and the surrounding community. Sinking Spring will become a “destination” place for people to work, live, eat, shop, and play by Boss Forward, representing, supporting, and promoting our downtown business corridor while engaging residents, businesses, and community organizations.

Our Vision

Boss Forward’s vision is to build a vibrant and thriving downtown destination for our community and others. We envision a future of collaborative engagement between businesses and the community that promotes and supports growth, diversity, and modern infrastructure. A revitalized streetscape and renewed downtown will encourage small business, commercial, and economic development. All who live in Sinking Spring will benefit from increased revenues and beautification projects.

Focusing on Our Community

The Four Points of Impact for Sinking Spring

Boss Forward focuses on four main areas of impact to assure the continued economic and community growth of Sinking Spring. These four pillars will allow us to partner and coordinate with existing organizations in and around the Borough of Sinking Spring to improve our downtown business districts and surrounding areas.

Community Improvements

Boss Forward aims to provide funding and resources to beautify and preserve our downtown corridor and community. This includes infrastructure and transportation, enhancing street fronts, street furniture, and landscaping. Encouraging dynamic new construction and open spaces that can be enjoyed by all.

Community Investment

Sinking Spring will become a vibrant destination for everyone to live, work, and play through our direct investment in the downtown business corridor and community. Boss Forward is a vehicle to help bring grant funding and private investments to the community that will benefit all.

Business Support

We are here to bring new businesses and developers to Sinking Spring and support the needs of existing business owners and property owners. This will be done by strengthening the existing economic base of the business district while identifying opportunities for new businesses to locate within Sinking Spring.


We will keep our residents and the surrounding community aware of ongoing developments and improvements to the downtown corridor. This will be done through an enhanced website and the marketing and promotion of local events and businesses.

We Are Here For You!
