Joint City Council / School Committee Subcommittee Text Size

Event takes place on February 12, 2020 at 6:00 PM
Holyoke City Hall, 536 Dwight Street, City Council Chambers



*Revised 2/6/20

City Council Order that the joint city council and school committee meet to discuss if the city is doing all that we can to move the MSBA process along.  If not, what can the city do to accelerate the process.


*Ordered that the school department and the department of public works seek to partner with the Mass DOT Safe Routes to School program to seek funding to improve the safety for students walking and or biking to school.  One priority should be the construction of a sidewalk for the Dean Campus beginning at the parking lot exit off Main Street and continuing southerly to the corner of St Vincent Street, and then continuing up St Vincent Street on the northerly side to the parking lot exit on that street.  All other school routes in the city should also be reviewed for needed improvements.
