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.
