Pittsfield: Input sought on endangered historic buildings


Pittsfield Historical Commission, in conjunction with the city's Department of Community Development, will hold a public meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, in Council Chambers at City Hall to solicit input to complete an Endangered Historic Building Casebook to support Pittsfield's ongoing preservation program.

The project is funded through a grant from the Massachusetts Historical Commission.

The event will feature Elizabeth Rairigh of the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, the project's consultant who will discuss the initiative.

The purpose of the Casebook is to identify and describe endangered historic buildings in Pittsfield, and provide a prioritized action plan for stakeholders to rehabilitate, reuse, and/or reimagine these properties.

The Pittsfield commission is looking for input from residents, business owners, and property owners who have thoughts on vacant, underutilized, abandoned, and/or threatened properties in the city.

For more information, contact Cornelius Hoss, city planner, at 413-499-9366.
