The grant will be used to complete a Circulation and Distribution Plan for the North Adams Downtown area. The plan will focus on linking neighborhoods and points of attraction, such as Mass. MoCA and MCLA. Long term transportation needs for the downtown area will also be addressed, including identifying ways to enhance traffic safety and increase facilities for biking and walking. The plan will also examine the future Berkshire Bike Path, which is expected to someday pass through the North Adams downtown. Project work will include significant outreach to downtown businesses and the public to help guide plan development.
