[ARCHIVED] Amherst to Host a Community Forum

Community Forum


Amherst Hosts a Community Forum 

A Conversation about our Town Center

For Immediate Release 

Contact: Christine Brestrup, Planning Director, 413-259-3145; or Paul Bockelman, Town Manager, 413-259-3002

(June 15, 2017) The Town of Amherst Select Board, Planning Board, and Town Manager invite you to a community forum on Thursday, June 29, 2017, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Woodbury Room of the Jones Library.  The purpose of the forum is to talk about the downtown – our town center. 

We want to hear from everyone – residents, business people, workers, walkers, bicyclists, movie-goers, library patrons, shoppers, visitors – whoever you are – about what works and what doesn’t work in our downtown.  What do we love and what needs to be improved?  Is the downtown the right size?  What’s missing and what needs fixing?  Do we have enough places for people to live, gather, play, dine, shop, work?  Do we have enough green space?  Do we like our sidewalks?  What about the Town Common?

Join us and express yourself in this interactive forum.  We want to know what you think.
