Letter: DeSisto neighbor backs development project

To the editor:

It is refreshing to see visionaries making a meaningful investment and commitment to the Berkshires. We are neighboring homeowners on Interlaken Road and fully support the development efforts of the ex-DeSisto estate.

The proposed development will bring needed jobs to the area and increased tax revenues benefiting the local economy. Additionally, the resort, condo complex and single family homes will draw people to relocate to the Berkshires, off-setting the declining population. It's time to embrace these zoning and building plans rather than causing unnecessary hurdles.

I commend the property owner and managing partners for taking a bold risk to better our community for generations to come.

Jeff Pratt,
