Picture Main Street - Upcoming Virtual Public Meeting



WHAT: Picture Main Street - Public Forum 
WHEN: Wednesday April 14th 6:00 PM 

Picture Main Street is evolving in response to meaningful public engagement. Community public forums (1/13/20, 11/10/20, and 2/28/21 with more planned in the Spring 2021), community focus groups, community surveys, observations of people using the shared streets (summer and fall 2020), engagement with city and community boards (Transportation, Planning, Tree, Bike/Ped, Disabilities, City Council, Downtown Northampton Association and the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce, and other stakeholder engagement including a project advisory group).

Picture Main Street has three core goals:

- Provide Safety and Access for All
- Promote a Vibrant and Attractive Downtown
- Create a Functional, Enduring, and Sustainable Streetscape


The next Picture Main Street forum: 6:00 PM on Wednesday 4/14 . We have moved on to being able to offer various alternatives (e.g., three lane and four line cross sections) and analyze the benefits and costs of each option. https://umass-amherst.zoom.us/j/94549101976 OR (646) 876-9923 (ID: 945 4910 1976)
