(Northampton, MA) — Northampton’s Office of Planning and Sustainability is looking for residents’ input on the future of Pleasant Street. Last night about a hundred people gathered for a brainstorming session called “Pleasant Futures.” Big changes are afoot, as the MassDOT plans a roundabout at the intersection of Pleasant and Conz Streets. Also, a passenger rail platform will be built near the former Union Station. Anyone with thoughts about the future of Pleasant Street is encouraged to email the city’s planning department.
