Mayor Morse Seeks Volunteers for Transit Oriented Development Advisory Committee Text Size

In an effort to support and encourage private investment in the areas near the future Amtrak passenger rail station and Bus transportation center in downtown, the City of Holyoke and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission will be completing a Transit Oriented Development study by the end of this year. Mayor Alex B. Morse is seeking dedicated residents and local business owners to be part of an advisory committee on the strategies recommended by this study.

The plan will look at the area around these transit hubs and analyze current infrastructure and regulations to develop detailed recommendations, strategies and proposed projects that could better support future development in Center City. The Advisory Committee will play an important role in providing feedback on strategies that can have the most traction for implementation on the local level.

Those interested should submit letters of interest and resumes to the Mayor’s Office, Room 1, City Hall, 536 Dwight Street, Holyoke, MA by Tuesday, August 20th. 

Residents and business owners from the Center City are particularly encouraged to apply.

For more information on the study, please contact Marcos Marrero at the Holyoke Office of Planning & Economic Development at (413) 322-5575 or
