The developer for the Greylock Glen campground pitched the plans on Thursday night as not only a economic driver that can bring the town millions in revenue but a project that will be built on accessibility, sustainability and community.
The prospective bidders received a brief overview of the project, what work it will entail and background on the entire glen development. The scope of the work consists of, among other things, a water storage tank, a water main, electrical work, piping and instrumentation work.
The funding includes a $1 million earmark for the Outdoor Center and a $2.9 U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant to construct the Glen's water system, which will support the entire development.
Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and more than 100 local officials and residents attended a ceremonial groundbreaking for the Greylock Glen Outdoor Center, marking a significant step in developing the 54-acre property.
U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal, chair of the House Committee on Ways and Means voted to pass the funding legislation that he said includes transformative investments that will help working families with the cost of living, create American jobs, and support the vulnerable.
Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides were in Adams Wednesday to celebrate a commitment of $6.5 million in state funding for construction of the center, which is expected to break ground later this summer.
