Welcome to the City of North Adams, a community with a rich history and a bright future. Our city offers an unparalleled combination of natural beauty and outdoor recreation, world class art and culture, and a great public liberal arts college - and the entrepreneurial and innovation spirit to make the most of these resources and amenities.
That spirit is the source of our greatest strength as a community. It is evident in pride that those of us who call North Adams home feel in our city. It is apparent in the experience of visitors for whom North Adams is a destination for tourism and discovery. It is implicit in our commitment to promote and achieve sustainable economic development and growth for the benefit of everyone in North Adams.
In service to that commitment our City has the responsibility - and the ability - to provide effective, efficient, and responsive public services to residents and visitors alike.
