DescriptionOn June 1, 2011, a tornado struck Western and
Central Massachusetts, leaving a path of destruction
a half-mile wide and 39 miles long. It
cut directly across the town of Monson, hitting
Main Street, the Town Hall, churches, stores,
and several hundred homes. While many
structures have been rebuilt, many others
— including civic spaces — are yet to be designed.
How might Monson use this historical
moment as an opportunity to look ahead, and
to rethink how its public places — buildings,
parks, open spaces — might work together to
support and foster this community?
Join the Community Design Resource Center,
the Town of Monson, and other stakeholders
for a morning of collaborative visioning.
