We are a small community group, self organized to elevate Montclair's VILLAGE into a vibrant, creative district that serves the needs of its residents; featuring quality, locally-owned businesses, restaurants and retail. Our goal is to help the Village reflect the evolving diversity of our community.


Our Mission

Spearhead selected projects that will move Montclair towards the vision of this group, making Montclair a desired area for commerce, entertainment, and general public gathering.


  1. By the end of 2018, attract at least two more locally-owned quality restaurants to the Village
  2. By the end of 2018, attract at least one locally-owned business to evaluate opening a location in the Village (e.g., Cole’s Hardware, independent produce shop)
  3. By the end of 2018, create a proposal(s) to convince existing grocery stores to renovate and uplevel or for introducing a Berkeley Bowl/Alameda Marketplace higher-end grocery into a larger retail space in Montclair
