                    This is a complete video of a Northampton, MA public forum on planning and sustainability that took place on 3/11/09. Here is a description from the promotional announcement: The Northampton Design Forum (NDF) is a local citizen group which invited the Notre Dame Urban Design Studio to Northampton last fall. This was funded entirely by private donations. We have planned a public forum to discuss the intersection of Planning and Sustainability on March 11, 2009 at 7 PM in the Bridge St. School cafeteria. We hope that you will be able to join us then. The event will have two components. The first is a brief introduction to the report to the public followed by a general discussion of the intersection of planning and sustainability. This will be moderated by Joel Russell (who is the chair of NDF and a member of the rezoning committee) and will include comments by Wayne Feiden, the Director of the Office of Planning and Development. We will provide copies of the "10 Principles of Good Neighborhood Design" to stimulate the conversation. There will be ample time for questions and comments. After a short break Aaron Helfand, a Northampton native who is one of the Notre Dame Urban Design Studio members, will use their schematic proposal for the area now occupied by parking lots along Hampton Ave. and the old Mill River bed as a specific example of the type of creative thinking that could help us imagine how we want our community to be in the future. City Council and NDF member Bob Reckman will moderate this portion of the program. Wayne Feiden will provide some background about the City's hopes for the old river bed. We expect a substantial discussion after Aaron's presentation. There are both printed and electronic copies of Envisioning Sustainable Northampton, the book they produced, at Forbes and Lilly Libraries if you want to see the drawings before the forum... It is important to emphasize that the schematic design is simply a vision, not an actual proposal. This video was recorded by Adam Cohen.
