Permitting Reviews of Industrial/Manufacturing Uses (2016)

This study analyzes the permitting processes for industrial or manufacturing uses in Easthampton and provides recommendations for permitting reforms. The Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) was contracted by the City of Easthampton, funded by a grant from the state’s Community Compact Cabinet program, to review the city’s permitting procedures for industrial and manufacturing uses and to compare Easthampton’s processes with those of similar nearby communities (Westfield, Northampton, Holyoke, Chicopee, West Springfield, South Hadley, Ludlow) competing for the same uses.
