Event Details

Last fall after our Needs Assessment forum in September, the topic “Community Investment, Growth & Challenges” was voted by our North Berkshire residents as a topic of interest to address at our monthly forum.

With community investment and growth comes change and challenges for residents. Join us for this conversation and tell us what your hopes and fears are for North Berkshire.

The goals of this forum are:

1) Assess our individual and community hopes and fears as development and change happen.
2) Define and introduce the general idea of “gentrification”: Does this apply to North Berkshire?
3) Sort fact from fiction: “What’s really going on in North Berkshire?”

Please note that this is an EVENING FORUM! It will be held on Thursday, February 7 at 5:00pm at The Green located at 85 Main Street. We look to community members from all walks of life for this important Coalition meeting. There will be an opportunity for introductions, brief announcements of your upcoming events/projects and networking. There will be a table available to display flyers about your announcements to share as well. We hope to see you on Thursday, February 7th at 5 pm at The Green in North Adams. Please note: The organizers of the Friendship Center Food Pantry ask friends who attend the nbCC forums throughout the year to please bring a healthy non-perishable food item for donation.
