Awarded to the Downtown Turner Falls Livability Plan, a blueprint for the next generation of sustainable growth and preservation for this historic mill village on the Connecticut River. A collaborative effort between multiple stakeholders, the plan includes recommendations for physical improvements and public/private investment in targeted revitalization areas at the core of the village. This is supported by market analysis and a plan to increase tourism, fill vacant storefronts and support an emerging arts and entertainment economy.
