The Holyoke Redevelopment Authority (HRA) held three public informational sessions throughout the Center City Wards to present their urban renewal plan entitled, “Connect. Construct. Create.: A Plan for the Revitalization of Center City Holyoke”. The last session was presented to the Holyoke Planning Board as part of their regular meeting on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 and was attended by over 40 members of the community.
These three sessions featured a presentation of the recently released plan, each being held on a different day of the week and in a different neighborhood of the Center City. Staff and HRA members have been guiding the community through the goals and actions laid out in the plan, and explain how the HRA will work over the next decades to make Center City Holyoke a diverse, dense and vibrant community.
