Workshop Description and Purpose - The Town of Amherst has retained The Cecil Group to prepare village center design plans and form-based zoning amendments for the North Amherst and Atkins Corner village centers. To initiate the planning and public participation process, The Cecil Group is conducting a Public Design Workshop focusing on major topics within the context of the overall planning, design and regulatory objectives for the Atkins Corner Village Center. The Design Workshop will be an interactive, visually-oriented charrette that introduces the public to the overall village planning process and engages them in design and development opportunities. The overall goal of the workshop is to define design and development scenarios that can be translated into appropriate conceptual plan and form-based zoning for the village center.
