Thoughtful zoning is essential to creating and preserving a healthy and wholesome community. The Council’s record to date on allowing development consistent with preserving the quality of life in Amherst has been poor, and some will say abysmal. The proposed moratorium will provide the Council and the Town breathing space to consider how to better manage future development, so as to preserve and enhance the quality of life in our Town.

  1. It certainly seems these buildings have had a negative impact on affordable housing and rental rates. Even if these buildings bring economic benefit, why not locate them elsewhere. Zoning amendments to bylaws that reflect a broader collective vision of our future will lead to better outcomes for all of us. Let’s pause, listen, work together and create a widely supported plan for the future.
