I will focus on Local Rapid Recovery Planning to develop a short-term and mid-term, project-based recovery plan. Together, we will develop a plan tailored to address the unique economic challenges and COVID-19 related impacts to Holyoke businesses. We need to be sure that as we transition into post-pandemic, that we have a clear plan in which we streamline resources and improve our local government practices so that businesses are supported and Government does not become a barrier to their success.
At Blandford, I have leveraged Local Rapid Recover Planning technical assistance from the state and am now actively working with the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission and local stakeholders to draft a plan that includes an analysis and exploration of challenges, barriers, strategies, and actions. Our plan will include a focus on tactical, strategic, and actionable project recommendations that help Blandford achieve its recovery goals.
