Community Development Committee

In February 2024, the Lanesborough Select Board approved the renaming of the former Economic Development Committee to be the Community Development Committee. The Committee’s initial focus will be to coordinate a new annual event, Lanesborough Day, to occur in late July/early August 2024 (date to be confirmed).  The Committee will also look at formalizing its mission, which may include identification and coordination of other community activities, networking events for Lanesborough businesses, and other activities that will support and enhance engagement opportunities for residents and support local businesses.

Following a model of other towns, Lanesborough Day will likely include some of the following elements:

  1. Touch a Truck (as was done at last year at the Elementary School and the Berkshire Mall parking lot)
  2. Food Trucks
  3. Live Music
  4. Launching / dedication of the finished pavilion
  5. Booths / tables of special interest / fundraising
  6. Games / activities / bouncy house
  7. Other representation by Lanesborough committees

This is a great opportunity if you want to be more involved with the town and contribute to something positive for the community with local impact.
