The days are getting slightly longer and a little bit brighter as we move through 2021.
There is plenty to be hopeful and optimistic about with a vaccination underway, a reexamination of government restrictions on businesses, and a Chamber in full swing for its members.
Last week, we conducted the first-ever Livestream via YouTube to install our new board of directors and Supervisor Kulpa delivered his State of the Town Address.
From Supervisor Kulpa, we learned that many of his visions and ideas presented three years ago, in his first address, have started to take final shape. Often, it is easy to assume that developers will move overnight when large scale projects are rolled out, that is not the case. The preparation to ensure these sites have the proper zoning and infrastructure needs take time and countless meetings with residents, government officials, and the business community to ensure Amherst has continued success for the next forty years. While we anticipate additional news soon, it is promising to hear we are on the cusp of several transformational initiatives in and around Niagara Falls Boulevard that will take shape within the next six to eight months.
