Work together to make Waubeeka plan happen

To the editor:

As a Williamstown resident and former golfer who played as a member of Waubeeka Golf Links for over 20 years, I heartily recommend that a compromise be reached that would satisfy the needs of both the town and Waubeeka.

The vistas at Waubeeka are gorgeous and the golf course has been a gem. Previous and current owners have gone to great lengths to beautify the layout. It provides the entrance to town from the south with a luxurious landscape.

That the Planning Board doesn't want to jeopardize that is laudable. I believe Waubeeka has the same goal. As a resort facility appears to be the only logical approach to solving the golf course's financial difficulties, I suggest the town help Waubeeka achieve its goal, and not oppose improvements.

I believe there is a solution that would meet the needs of all parties. Let this come to a resolution which keeps Waubeeka a wonderful, beautiful golf course at an entrance to Williamstown for years to come. Williamstown needs Waubeeka. North Berkshire needs Waubeeka. Make it happen.
