There were many ideas generated at the Government Affairs Committee meeting this month, chaired by Sherry Street. We will be sending out information on the legislative activities, advocacy efforts and emerging issues, but first would like your help on an initiative the committee is considering… can you think of a place in your community that could use a transformation? We have access to NAR financial assistance ($1,500-$5,000) to help turn “eyesores” into welcoming destinations accessible to everyone in a community. Hopefully, through some Realtor sweat and funding, we can create places where residents can come together that are welcoming, safe, pretty and usable. Think of all the uninviting, parks, bus stops, sidewalks, or streets in your community…. Who better to do this than a Realtor who knows the neighborhoods and can help us focus efforts to enhance the Berkshires. Name the place in your community!
