2023 "Home Of" Placemaking Project
Create a sense of place and promote your business!
We are proud to share that we were on of 12 recipients of Commonwealth Places awards in Massachusetts announced by the Baker-Polito administration at the end of last year.
We are partnering with the Town of Amherst, The Mill District in North Amherst, and businesses of South Amherst’s Pomeroy Village to implement a placemaking and common space activation project through the introduction of plantings, picnic tables, and Adirondack chairs in Village Centers to create outdoor gathering space that will encourage social cohesion and increase foot traffic in the neighborhood business districts of South and North Amherst.
We invite you to be part of this work and help us exceed our required $5K match. This is your opportunity to make an impact in your local community and promote your company.
