Cushman Housing Opponents Suffer Setback

Opponents of the 170 units of student housing in the North Amherst village of Cushman have been dealt another blow.  The Amherst Planning Board has recommended against purchasing the land for conservation, saying the $6.5 million price tag is too high.  The town has the right of first refusal to buy the 150 acres from WD Cowls.  The select board will decide whether to exercise that option at its next meeting July 29th.
