Vince O'Connor, one man protest
Like "1 East Pleasant Street" for instance, a proposed 5-story mixed use development with 78 apartments and retail for up to four businesses on the ground floor. All plunked down on a 35,000 square foot parcel on the northern end of Amherst town center, currently known as "The Carriage Shops".
Tonight's Planning Board meeting on the subject (probably not the only one) will no doubt be well attended by the usual suspects, with the usual complaint: not the right place for the project.
Of course with some people -- all too many in Amherst -- there's never a right place for any project.
