Public Meeting: Downtown Athol Rapid Recovery Plan – Project Survey and Open House, August 3rd @5pm via Zoom

For the past few months, Athol has been participating in the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development’s Local Rapid Recovery Plan (LRRP) Program, a quick-moving effort aimed at developing a Local Rapid Recovery Plan for Downtown Athol. Following the initial phase of data collection and analysis, the team has created a set of ten projects to be included in the plan to support the goal of ‘increasing vitality in Downtown Athol’ and recovery of both the physical and business environments in the near future. These projects will be detailed so they can be pursued by the Town immediately following the finalization of the plan, (as dependent upon potential funding sources and administrative capacity).

There are two ways to engage with the team in this last phase of the project:

1) ONLINE SURVEY

The following survey provides an opportunity to learn about each of the projects at a general level, to vote on their desired outcomes, and to rank the projects in order of priority.

The survey can be completed between July 21st and August 8thusing this link https://forms.office.com/r/gsQWgYCh7Z or the QR Code on the embedded in the Project Filer available here at this link: https://www.athol-ma.gov/sites/g/files/vyhlif2741/f/uploads/athol_lrrp_s...

2) VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE

Following the 2-week survey period, a virtual open house will be held for visitors to come and go as they are able. The purpose of the open house is to let Athol residents and business owners:
