Mission Statement
Selectboard members serve a term of three years, with one or two elected each year. As chief administrative officers of the town, Selectboard members are responsible throughout the year for implementing the decisions of Town Meeting. They are the town’s legal agent; the commissioners of highways and sewers and of police; the board of public welfare; and the license board, holding hearings on license applications for the sale of alcoholic beverages, storage of gasoline, etc. They draw up the warrant for every Town Meeting. They appoint most of the non-elected officials and boards but not the Committee on Appropriations. The chair shares in appointing special committees.

Age & Dementia Friendly Communities Initiative


The cities of Chicopee and Holyoke, and the town of South Hadley, have partnered with the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission to create a regional action plan for more age-friendly and dementia-friendly communities. The plan addresses quality of life issues such as walkability of outdoor spaces, transportation needs, information access, and social isolation, particularly in relation to older adults.
