First Downtown Planning Forum Comments and Feedback

  1. If you were unable to attend the Community Forum on June 29th but would like to share your thoughts, we would love to hear from you. Here are instructions for submitting comments. NOTE: If you don't have access to a printer, you may request hard copies of the map used in Exercise #1 and #3 from the Planning Department. We will be accepting comments until September 1, 2017.

  2. Print out the map linked below and mark on it with either marker, small stickers, or with small Post-it notes the places that you love in downtown Amherst . (Examples: Unitarian Church stained glass window, Sweetser Park, Hastings, etc.) Note: The map is easier to work with if printed at 11"x17". Then scan the map and email it back to planning@amherstma.gov or mail to: Planning Department, Attn: Steven McCarthy Town Hall 4 Boltwood Avenue Amherst, MA 01002

  3. In the comment box, list the qualities of the downtown that you value and those that you think need improving.

  4. Print out the same map from Exercise 1 and mark on it with marker where you think the edges of Downtown Amherst are located. You can add Post-it notes if you wish to explain your thought process. Then scan the map and email it back to planning@amherstma.gov or mail to: Planning Department, Attn: Steven McCarthy Town Hall 4 Boltwood Avenue Amherst, MA 01002
