North Adams is a vibrant community located in the Northwest corner of the beautiful Berkshires. Steeped in art, culture, and community - what's happening in Massachusetts' smallest city may surprise you. North Adams is the Berkshire hub from which to delve into contemporary art, indie music, outdoor recreation, fine dining, independent retail, and antiques. It's a great place to live, work, and play!

North Adams Cancels All Summer Events for 2020

It's true. Sadly, we have made the difficult decision to cancel city-run summer events for 2020. There is nothing we love more than bringing the community together to enjoy this lovely little city and all its magic, but right now we have to put the health and safety of our residents first.
This isn't for forever and we're trying to keep that in perspective.
We are lucky enough to live in a place steeped in natural beauty and outdoor adventures just waiting to be explored. While we won't be bringing you events this summer, we are collaborating on summer guide of the available activities you can enjoy and guidelines on how to keep your summer safe for you, but more importantly all of our loved ones who are sick, elderly, or immune-compromised.
Thank you, North Adams, for understanding. The current global situation is a lot for all of us.
Take a deep breathe and remember to be excellent to each other.

Phase 1 toolkit.

The Reopening Massachusetts plan (https://www.mass.gov/info-details/reopening-massachusetts) released last week outlines workplace safety standards and sector-specific guidance that businesses must follow in order to reopen. As we move through the plan over the coming weeks and months, the City of North Adams and the North Adams Chamber of Commerce are here to help businesses reopen, modify operations, and meet all state and local safety standards to keep you, your employees, your customers, and our community safe and healthy.

We have created a Back to Business North Adams Toolkit that is designed to provide a quick reference to reopening guidelines and public health advice. We will update it based on your feedback and as new information becomes available. Please share this with your professional networks and any businesses you know of that may benefit from the guidance in this document. -TWB

North County Memorial Day Program will be aired on Monday May 25, 2020 on Channel 1301 at the following times:

9am and 12 noon

Memorial Day is a solemn occasion. That is why
since 1868 we have gathered in city and town squares, memorial parks, and cemeteries across this great nation at the end of May to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

The times we find ourselves in are anything but normal, and our observance of Memorial Day also has taken on a new, physically distanced form. But regardless of the situation and the need to stay apart from our honored veterans and auxiliaries, first responders, students, and our friends and neighbors, our responsibility and privilege to honor the fallen is one we all share. It’s one we take just as seriously and respectfully this year as we always have in North Adams and the Northern Berkshires.

Memorial Day unites veterans, family members, and communities in shared remembrance. And, on this and every Memorial Day in North Adams we remember in a special way two fallen heroes: Army Sergeant Peter W. Foote III, who lost his life in service in Vietnam in 1968; and Army Specialist Michael DeMarsico II, who lost his life in service in Afghanistan in 2012.

Make no mistake, Memorial Day is about honoring our fallen service people. But circumstances matter, especially right now. The dead we honor on Memorial Day made the ultimate sacrifice because of their service. What President Lincoln, in the Gettysburg Address, called “the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.”

This Memorial Day, we all have work to do in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. And much of that work is the product of the service and sacrifice of so many in our community who are doing their part to keep themselves, their family, and our community safe.

We have a responsibility to honor the sacrifices of those who came before us by sacrificing for our community now. By sharing the responsibility oftraveling the long road of this pandemic, and the long road to full recovery.

To once again quote President Lincoln, “We can succeed only by concert. It is not ‘can any of us imagine better?’ but, ‘can we all do better?’”

Thank you all for honoring the meaning of Memorial Day. -TWB

Today, Governor Charlie Baker and his team issued the REOPENING MASSACHUSETTS report and launched a Reopening Massachusetts website at the following link: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/reopening-massachusetts

The report and site outline guidance around Phase 1 of the reopening plan, including workplace safety standards and sector-specific guidance that businesses must follow, especially for the construction and manufacturing sectors as well as for places of worship which are among the first sectors permitted to open.

The governor also announced a “Safer at Home” advisory to keep up the focus on physical distancing and continuing to protect our family members, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.

Now that the plan has been released I will work with my team to review the plan to ensure North Adams and the Northern Berkshires are prepared to reopen effectively, safely, and in alignment with the state plan and guidance around protecting public health and safety. As stated in the report, reopening will be driven by public health data.

More to come... -TWB

Don't forget! Tomorrow, Tuesday April 21, is #NorthBerkCares Day!

Friends,

We all continue to encourage people to stay home unless absolutely necessary, and to practice physical distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, but there are still things we all can do to perform acts of kindness for our families, friends, neighbors, our first responders and front line workers, and people battling the virus or mourning loved ones who have passed away. Even as we ask our Northern Berkshire community to make sacrifices, we hear from people who want to help. So, let’s create an easy, public, and most of all, safe way to invite and encourage that help.

Earlier this week, Mayor Marty Walsh and the City of Boston marked One Boston Day. This is an annual tradition that celebrates the resiliency, generosity, and strength demonstrated by the people of Boston and those around the world. Recognizing the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Walsh has invited Bostonians “to stand together by staying apart,” to download a checklist of acts of kindness, and to use the use the hashtag #onebostonday to share their acts of kindness with the world.

This is a great idea, and one we easily can emulate to activate, celebrate, and engage the compassion, resilience, and strength of our Northern Berkshire community. It is in that spirit that I invite you to join me and other community leaders and residents from across the Northern Berkshires in supporting and promoting the first Northern Berkshire Cares Day on Tuesday, April 21.

Using One Boston Day as a model we’ve created a Northern Berkshire checklist and will promote #NorthBerkCares so that people can share their acts of kindness with the community and to prove that now, as always, the Northern Berkshires stand together, and that no matter what challenges we face we always look out for our neighbors.
