Given the escalating series of closures and Governor Baker’s recent emergency order modifying the Open Meeting Law, Amherst Media is developing protocols to help meet the community’s needs in the coming months.
We here at Amherst Media wanted to give you an update on how we are responding to the current Health Emergency, COVID-19 and our philosophy and protocols as we move forward.
The Town of Amherst created a page sharing information about COVID-19 risk and what the town plans to do to protect its citizens, as well as travelers.
The page can be found at https://www.amherstma.gov/3519/Coronavirus and outlines who's working on the issue and what individual citizens can do help, as well as resourced on COVID-19 and information for recent travelers from high risk countries.
At Monday's Local Historic District Commission meeting (watch full meeting here), Amherst Media passed a threshold in obtaining a building permit to construct a new facility at the corner of Main and Gray Streets when the commission passed a certificate of appropriateness with conditions.
