Readers of the Amherst Indy may already know that plans for a  45-acre, ground-mounted solar installation on forested land off Shutesbury Road have been submitted to the government of Amherst. The site is located in the outlying residence zone (RO) and is owned by W D Cowls, Inc.  

The Conservation Commission will continue its examination of this controversial proposal on Wednesday, November 10 at 7:35 p.m.  You can attend this meeting over Zoom.
