Easthampton Returns to In-person Meetings

Easthampton, MA - All Easthampton multi-member bodies, boards, and committees will return to in-person meetings on April 1, 2022. Locations will be published on public notices and agendas. 

To allow the public to participate in person or virtually, the City is piloting a hybrid meeting option with selected multi-member bodies:

  • City Council

  • Conservation Commission

  • Planning Board

  • School Committee 

  • School Building Committee 

  • Zoning Board of Appeals 

Mayor LaChapelle unscored the importance of access, “Virtual meetings opened public meetings to residents in unprecedented numbers. Hybrid meetings are a part of the “new normal”.“ 

The Easthampton I.T. Department is updating equipment and software to safely provide virtual access during in-person meetings. “The goal is to update all public meeting spaces, allowing hybrid meetings to be the norm, not the exception. The reality is that a large part of the City’s IT infrastructure is so old, replacement is the only choice,” said IT Director Dr. Karin Moyano Camihort.
