North Adams, MA, will be the site of New England's first "Better Block" project, thanks to a team of students at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. The students are enrolled in Prof. Elena Traister's Green Living Seminar, and they are working together as a class to carry out the Better Block project on Eagle Street on April 27.
I am really excited about this project, as it's an indirect outcome of Imagining North Adams and the assistance we've lent to Prof. Traister and her class. I can't wait to see the students' ideas in action.
