Capacity for Public-Private Partnerships

We have worked with the Army Corps of Engineers on a flood control project along one of the waterways in our town, and we have identified additional projects that have not yet been completed. These projects are identified in our Town Capital Improvement Program, a planning tool to lay out the next five (5) years. The opportunity exists for private sector involvement due to our association with the Amherst Chamber of Commerce and Amherst Industrial Development Agency along with many community organizations and committees who are currently involved in various aspects of our town. We have a public/private partnership in place with our Pepsi Center, an extensive recreation center within Amherst. We have several hundred volunteers and community groups supporting the town’s operations.
