On April 15, Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz and the City Council approved funding for the construction of an animal control facility (kennel). The mayor is currently developing plans to place it in the middle of my neighborhood.

Mayor Narkewicz said, in a January 2019 MassLive article, “the ideal location would be on land far away from homes.” Why is the city now considering this parcel of land in a residential area?

Nowhere in Massachusetts is a municipal kennel located this close to homes. There is a reason for that. Approximately 100 residents will be impacted by constant barking and associated smells of the kennel and may experience serious health issues as a result, particularly the elderly and families with young children.

Just because the mayor can place a kennel here, doesn’t mean he should. The health and well-being of his residents should take priority. I ask the mayor to search for a more suitable location for this facility.
