Good Morning,

This is a reminder that the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) is now engaged in developing the following chapters of South Hadley’s new Comprehensive Plan:
Ø Community Design & Land Use

Ø Historic & Cultural Resources

Ø Natural Resources

Ø Recreation & Open Space

A Community Gathering to solicit community input as to the issues and recommendations regarding these four chapters will be held later this month as follows:

DATE: Wednesday, April 29, 2009

TIME: 7:05 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.

PLACE: Town Hall Auditorium

The four chapters currently under development will address such matters as:
Ø In what form and where should we meet the diverse housing, shopping, travel, and recreation needs of our senior citizens and younger families?

Ø How should the Town balance the desire to protect its community character (historical buildings and open spaces in particular) with the need to accommodate new housing and businesses?

Ø Where and how much of the new residential development should be in low density subdivisions or higher density condo or apartment developments?

Ø How should commercial development be integrated into residential use areas along the Route 116, Route 33, and Granby Road corridors?

Ø What roles do the Falls, the Center, and other areas play in South Hadley’s economic, recreational, and housing future?

Ø What type of recreational spaces should the Town be developing?

Ø Should the Town be more active in the physical design of new buildings and developments?

Members of CPAC want to encourage you to attend and participate in this very interactive Community Gathering. Please encourage your friends, neighbors, and business associates to attend and voice their opinions as well.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Town Planner Richard Harris at 413-538-5011 or email at cpac@southhadley.org
