The Ocean Beach MainStreet Association (OBMA) is comprised of area merchants and professionals dedicated to building a thriving business district that fulfills the needs of the neighboring community and visitors alike. The OBMA is a 501(c)6 private nonprofit business organization operating with 14 elected Board Members, committed to preserving a healthy active atmosphere for those who work, live and visit Ocean Beach.

Originally formed in 1978 as the Ocean Beach Merchant’s Association, in June of 1998 the OBMA received national and state designation into the “Main Street” program and thus changed its name. The program is grounded in preservation and divides its scope of work within 4 areas: Organization, Promotion, Economic Restructuring, and Design.
