Article 38

Article 38 is a Citizen’s Article for the May, 2016, Amherst Town Warrant, sponsored by Maria Kopicki and Laura Quilter.  It requests an allocation of $40,000 to assess the needs and costs of renovation, and the total costs of the proposed reconfiguration (including the costs that would be wholly borne by the Town).

Update May 26: Town Meeting failed to pass Article 38, although it did get more than a third of the vote in an abbreviated, late-at-night discussion. See blog post for more detail.
