Consultants present six key economic development recommendations for Sunderland
SUNDERLAND — A Boston-based architecture and design office assigned as a consultant to Sunderland presented its recommendations for the town’s pandemic recovery during a recent Select Board meeting.
The organization, OverUnder, was assigned to the town by the state government as a part of the Rapid Recovery Plan (RRP) Program. According to the state’s website, the program involves developing “actionable, project-based recovery plans” for towns and cities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The presentation included a list of project and development ideas based around Sunderland’s Village Center. Rami el Samahy, an OverUnder principal, said some people may find the number of ideas “overwhelming,” but they should remember these are only preliminary recommendations.
“Please treat this as a brainstorming session,” el Samahy said. “Some may be more relevant than others, so we welcome your feedback.”
