Incorporated in 1916, Brentwood Borough is a mature municipality with a dense collection of attractive homes, a stable small business community, and an excellent transportation infrastructure.
Combining walkability and excellent transit service with adequate greenspace and parking, Brentwood affords residents easy access to both the cosmopolitan attractions of the city and the retail destinations of the suburbs.

Resources Supporting Brentwood Residents
Since its founding in 1959, The Brentwood Baldwin Whitehall Chamber of Commerce has worked to promote every business within our Chamber. Our vision has always been to make our community a better place to live, shop, and do business. As business people, we come together and reach out to every aspect of the community. We sponsor activities to inform residents and businesses of our goods and services. Our luncheons, dinners, and mixers, give us an opportunity to discuss our needs, present our products and services, and discover what others have to offer.
In addition to keeping you advised of local, state, and federal government activities that affect business issues, we unite to influence government decisions and interventions that affect the business climate. We come together to solve problems and address barriers to our prosperity. We cooperate with school districts and all the organizations within them. We assist other civic and municipal organizations, and we honor the families who in turn support our businesses.
The Chamber invites all businesses, professionals, and civic organizations to join us. Together we can work to promote the growth and excellence of our communities.
