The MCBF Trivia Night Raises $1576 for Charity!
During the spring of 1982, City staff and local merchants began discussing the central business district’s need for rejuvenation. From these initial conversations grew the idea of creating an apolitical group with the skills and financial resources necessary to assist the entire Maplewood community revitalization effort. On May 3, 1982, the Maplewood Community Betterment Foundation was established as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.
Enormous progress has been made over the past three decades since the MCBF’s creation. Investments made by the City and local businesses have paid off and a vibrancy has returned to our downtown and arterial corridors. Residential property values have risen dramatically, the School District continues to improve its scores and reputation and the community as a whole has regained its position in the metropolitan region.
While much has been accomplished over the years, the MCBF remains committed to its mission of unifying residents, businesses and government, and so that all interest groups can work together and continue to improve the community where we live, work and play.
MCBF has been instrumental in inspiring positive change and in promoting a healthy self-image among Maplewood residents and business people. There is a wonderful spirit of cooperation in the community, which will contribute to its bright future.
