Controversial Williamstown Sporting Goods Store Proposal Withdrawn
By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff
A proposal to site a sporting goods store on North Hoosac Road has been withdrawn because of vocal opposition.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday avoided a decision on the most controversial issue it has faced this year.
But it did allow a resident to take advantage of the bylaw that resulted from the most contentious issue that faced another town board in the last 12 months.
Billy Preite withdrew his request for a special permit to operate a sporting goods store on North Hoosac Road, obviating the need for the board to continue a stormy public hearing that began in September.
In a letter to the board, Preite cited the hostility of those who objected to his proposal to open the store, which would have included a line of collectible firearms.
