What’s Happening in the Neighborhood 2015-2016

This past year the Tyler Street District Transformative Development Initiative completed a series of community input interviews and open houses with residents, community organizations and businesses. In addition, the TDI partners were awarded a MassDevelopment Fellow for 3 years beginning in May 2016.

We are very excited the second phase of the Morningside Walking Loop will be part of the Grand Opening in June 2016 of the Woodlawn Avenue Bridge. The Walking Loop is made possible by TSBG's partnerships with William Stanley Business Park, Be Well Berkshires, Berkshire Health Systems, Healthy Pittsfield and the city's community development office.

Mark your calendars for August 25th, the date of the annual Discover Tyler Street event, a local cultural festival celebrating the future of Arts, Food & Innovation in the neighborhood. Innovation exhibits and demos will return this year.

Through our Fresh Food Initiatives, the Downtown Pittsfield Farmers Market will be at the Discover Tyler festival with some of their farmers offering fresh, local food for sale.

We sponsored again the very popular Halloween Costume Photo Contest with gift baskets full of local goodies awarded to the three best costumes as voted by the public on our Facebook page.

Monthly Meetings bring together businesses, residents, our city councilors, the city's community development and community groups from the neighborhood and beyond, to work together and support initiatives such as the Tyler St District TDI, the Healthy Walking Loop, Fresh Food Initiatives, Pittsfield Community Gardens, Berkshire Children and Families community services, Friends of St. Mary's, Arts and Cultural events and more.

Progress on the Street Lighting Initiative: $200,000 of funding allocated in the City of PIttsfield's 2016 budget for the study - which is required to apply for streetscape grant monies.

The district sparkled again during the November and December holiday season with our decorative poles along Tyler Street.

Funds have been allocated from the Walk and Bike safety grant to improve pedestrian traffic in the Dairy Cone area.

Through our Fresh Food Initiatives with Be Well Berkshires, TSBG business member Mezzie's Variety & Luncheonette joined the Healthy Dining Options program, providing veggie-filled breakfast or lunch options on their menu. Interested? Contact Be Well Berkshires Healthy Dining Options.

ShopMorningside.com gained new sponsors, helping us get the word out about businesses in our district.
