The Community Development gave its OK for the owner to move forward with selling the individual lots.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A new lakefront neighborhood is in the making.

The Community Development Board Thursday gave the OK for 650 Churchill Street LLC to subdivide the first of five lots on the 35-acre parcel.

The buildout has been threes years in the making since the board initially approved the full development plans.

"It is a special permit for five lots and a common driveway," said engineer James Seidl, of SK Design. "We are creating the first lot at this point."

Owner Don Bernard purchased the property from the Gladys Allen Brigham Community Center, which sold off a parcel next to Camp Stevenson-Witawentin. The $1.2 million deal was completed last year.

The thin parcel already has a driveway cutting down to the lake, where the property widens. The driveway is across from Cascade Street, between the remainder of Camp Stevenson-Witawentin and Camp Winadu. Bernard's plan is to break land into high-end lakefront homes.

"There is going to be a common driveway for all of the lots," Seidl said.

The first lot is currently listed on the market for about $400,000; lots 2,3 and 4 are listed at just short $500,000 while lot 5 is listed for $1 million. Lot 1 is 6.8 acres.

The lots feature dock permits and city sewer, and is bisected by Parker Brook. See more of the property details here.

In other business, a final decision on the proposed electronic billboard at the intersection of East and Elm streets was delayed. Lamar Advertising proposed the billboard but the board asked for more information before approving it. Lamar returned to the board asking for a continuance until May 6, which was approved.
