The 2019 regional map is one of the most successful advertising tools for local businesses and the region. This year 35,000 maps will be printed and distributed from May – November to: the Village Information Center, Bridge of Flowers, Potholes, Greenfield Information Center, and other visitor centers in Franklin and Berkshire Counties. Plus, advertisers receive a supply and GSFABA distributes the maps at The Big E and mails them to over 8,000 households and businesses in the region through the West County Shopper.

This year we are breathing new life into the map with an updated design by Denese Gurley that will create greater clarity about the region  and reflect the scenic and rural beauty of both downtown Shelburne Falls and western Franklin County and highlighting the region’s outdoor recreation opportunities and natural-resource-based businesses ..
