A Little On The Top

Former Fiber Arts Building downtown Amherst this morning 

Work continues on the building Amherst College purchased four years ago for $2.3 Million, even though it was only assessed at $1 million.

Activist Vince O'Connor tried to get Amherst Town Meeting to take the property from Amherst College via eminent domain but like a lot of Vince's initiatives these days, the best laid plan did not go very far.

Amherst College planes to turn it into office space.

Great the school bought that spot. They'll improve yet another strip of Amherst that looks old and weathered. The building was a shambles.

It would be even better if they paid taxes on it.
