Please RSVP Below

This winter term, Conway’s Class of 2020 is working on planning projects in towns and cities across Massachusetts. Student teams will present recommendations grounded in GIS analysis and input from communities. We invite a panel of outside critics, and their comments will help guide revisions the students will make over the final weeks of the term. Come learn about our students’ process, hear comments from the critics, and join the Conway community for lunch and a reception.

Projects this term include:

  • Open Space and Recreation Plan for the City of Newton
  • Food System Study for the Ipswich Bay Area
  • Watershed Resilience Assessment: Mill River (Northampton)
  • Watershed Resilience Assessment: Mill River (Springfield)
  • Watershed Management Plan: Fort River
  • Rail Trail Connectivity Plan for the City of Chicopee

Join us for part or all of the day on Friday, February 28. 

Where: 88 Village Hill Road, Northampton, MA
