Opinion: Is Amherst Redeemable?
If you moved to Amherst before the mid 2000’s, consider why you came to town. For many, Amherst was deemed to be an idyllic place. It had the cultural advantages of an academic community, within a semi-rural environment. It had a quaint town center, with locally owned stores catering to the basic needs of its residents. It had a school system famed for its rigor, diversity, and its ability to offer classes for students who struggled, or who were working above grade level, and drew students from around the valley. It had peaceful neighborhoods and a town meeting style of governance which, though not a model of expediency, allowed for residents to participate in debate and decision making. It had good roads and a couple dozen well-maintained conservation areas that protected open spaces. It was a paradisical progressive bubble. Some still perceive it as such, but much of what drew people to town a couple decades ago has changed, and not for the better.
