Pittsfield has received $880,000 in Site Readiness Program funding from the state's Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development for the redevelopment of Site 9 at the William Stanley Business Park.
The Pittsfield Economic Development Authority met Wednesday morning, remotely, accepted the executive director's resignation, and appointed Pittsfield's Business Development Manager Michael Coakley as the interim manager.
After a brief executive session Tuesday, the Pittsfield Economic Development Authority voted to support Berkshire Kind's intent to purchase land in the business park and erect a 20,000 square foot grow facility.
In other business, the Berkshire Innovation Center is on pace for an October opening. The research and development center broke ground in September and now has a new executive director on board in Ben Sosne.
