Five Hampshire County communities and Holyoke have landed grants totaling more than $5.1 million from the state’s Community One Stop for Growth grant program.
Administered by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the program funds economic development projects related to planning and zoning, site preparation, building construction and infrastructure.
In Cummington, the town will get $882,000 to help replace existing deformed and undersized infrastructure for the Stage Road Culvert, which is currently a public safety risk.
The town will also receive $45,000 for a feasibility study to determine the work needed to bring a mostly vacant elementary school building into code compliance for reuse. Town officials envision using the old school building as a new center of town government, regional food incubator, business rental space and preschool/day care facility. Plans call for making the space more energy-efficient, and potentially replacing the oil-burning furnaces with a more efficient heating andcooling system.
