Who Are We?
Friends of the Holyoke Canalwalk is a grass-roots, citizens advocacy organization, dedicated to supporting the Holyoke Canalwalk project, in Holyoke, Massachusetts. We are community residents, artists, families, business and property owners who volunteer our time to help move the Canalwalk project forward.
- We hold monthly strategy meetings. We often invite guest speakers to inform our group about different facets of the Canalwalk project
- We communicate and collaborate with the City Planning and Development office and other project leaders
- We support efforts to obtain additional funding to complete all phases of the project - We educate and inform community members and groups about our activities and the benefits of the Canalwalk
- We envision a community promenade that can bring together divergent groups in shared activities and create a new version of a "village" or community in downtown Holyoke.
