A Town Suburban Renewal Agency A Great Move For Amherst

by James Tricoli

Our Amherst IDA deals with projects which cost more then minor local renewal projects. The suggestion below I believe can be a very useful and helpful to Amherst. Money to fund this agency would come from State and Federal grants and other government resources.
Whereas there is currently no governmental agency within the Town of Amherst to adequately deal with the increasing number of vacant and/or distressed commercial parcels in the older sections of the town, be it hereby
Resolved that the Amherst Town Board hereby directs the Town Attorney to draft and prepare appropriate local legislation to create and authorize a town suburban renewal agency in and  for the Town of Amherst to address this problem.
