Northampton Reaches 25 Percent Open Space Goal

     The city of Northampton, Massachusetts recently made new land purchases, including the only bog located in the city, to add to its acreage of permanently protected open space.

      The new acquisitions totaled 146 acres and cost approximately $650,000. 

       It also marked a milestone, as now one-quarter of the city is protected land.

     WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Wayne Feiden, Northampton’s Director of Planning and Sustainability.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
