Mayor Domenic J. Sarno was thrilled to welcome students from the University of Massachusetts Amherst Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning graduate program to our Springfield today. The graduate students visited Springfield as part of their walking tour orientation to kick-off the semester.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno stated, “We’ve had a great relationship and much success with this program, and it is always a pleasure to meet UMass’s new incoming landscape architecture and planning graduate students. I met students from around the world today who are studying planning and architecture at UMass and we had a great conversation about planning in an urban center like the City of Springfield. Thank you to all the students for coming down to visit our Springfield and to Principal Planner Scott Hanson, Deputy Director Brian Connors, Senior Planner Alvin Allen, and our entire Office of Planning for helping us welcome them to our city. Wishing all continued success as the new semester begins. We look forward to their ideas, vision, energy, and vibrancy.”
