A Very Cool Dining Alternative Is Coming To North Adams
We want to know what you think about the outdoor dining which will be in the Center Street parking lot, after reading this at the bottom is a poll that you can take.
This sounds like a great idea to help out local eateries, I think a lot of people will like dining Alfresco.
The North Adams Chamber of Commerce is going to transform the Center Street parking lot at 55 Veterans Memorial Drive into a seasonal public dining area they will be calling it Mohawk Plaza, the chamber has received a ten thousand dollar grant from MassDevelopment.
Funds will be used to add outdoor seating, a sidewalk surface mural, wayfinding signage, character, lighting, and landscape work. I remember during the pandemic Garzie had set up a tent to serve customers on the blocked road near the parking area.
The North Adams Chamber of Commerce will also be crowdfunding fall. If they reach a goal of $7,850 goal they will receive an additional $7,850 matching grant from MassDevelopment.
MassDevelopment President and CEO Dan Rivera said,
"Amazing things can happen when communities reimagine underutilized public spaces, such as North Adams Chamber of Commerce's vision for a parking lot steps away from the city's Main Street, MassDevelopment is pleased to help the organization create Mohawk Plaza, a space that will increase foot traffic downtown, provide additional outdoor dining, and reinvigorate a prime public way."
