Town's input sought on PhoTec site work

To the editor:

The initial stages of the long-awaited development of the property at 330 Cole Avenue, commonly known as the PhoTec site, is now underway. New conceptual plans have been developed that include the renovation and use of the existing "cube" building, as well as construction of two-story townhouses, creating 46 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units for individuals or families of all ages with low or moderate incomes.

As part of its monthly meeting, Williamstown's Affordable Housing Committee (AHC) has asked the developer of the Cole Avenue site, The Berkshire Housing Development Corporation to provide an overview of their plans for the new project. The meeting is also designed to provide an opportunity for residents who live in the neighborhood, as well as the broader community, to provide initial feedback on design and other issues.

So, come to the January meeting of the Affordable Housing Committee to hear about future plans for the Cole Avenue site, to ask questions, and to provide your suggestions. The meeting will be held at Town Hall, Tuesday, Jan. 12, at 5 p.m.

The AHC and the developer want to hear from you, so please join us for this meeting!

Van Ellet, Williamstown The writer is chairman of the Affordable Housing Committee.
