Northampton Council to Debate Vibrant Sidewalks

The Northampton City Council will consider a measure that calls for more street furniture, not less. ┬áThe “Resolution to Support Vibrant Sidewalks” will be the topic of debate Thursday night. ┬áThe bill comes on the heels of a short-lived controversial experiment where benches were removed from the downtown to discourage panhandling.
