These forums are part of a series that will help shape the goals and policies for a new long-range strategic plan for the region, called Sustainable Berkshires

Spearheaded by the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission through a HUD Sustainable Communities Planning Grant, the goal is to foster collaborative action across the region to address the most pressing needs and take strategic steps to achieve goals for a vibrant future.

Because small businesses have a significant impact on the local economy, it is vital that we hear from small-business owners and incorporate your suggestions into the Sustainable Berkshires plan. Registration required

More information about the planning process can be found at Contact BRPC or 1Berkshire for additional information on this project or the upcoming economic development sessions.
