Letter: Blackmer Brings Expertise to City Council

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

On Tuesday, Nov. 5, I encourage everyone to vote for Lisa Blackmer for North Adams City Council.

Our council has been lacking an expert on state and federal funding resources ever since Lisa left the council a few years ago. The intricacies of Beacon Hill and Washington, D.C., are something that Lisa has become very familiar with in her professional roles in various towns around the region. Knowing which levers to pull and buttons to press will be a great asset to our city's legislative body.

Mark your ballots carefully and seriously. Avoid the gadflies. North Adams is moving in the right direction and Lisa was, and will be, a huge part of that for years to come.

North Adams Planners OK High End Union Street Housing

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

David Moresi plans to renovate the second and third floors of the Wall-Streeter mill into one and two-bedroom apartments.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Developer David Moresi's next project is to transform the offices in the former Wall-Streeter building into high-end apartments.
The Planning Board on Monday approved Moresi Commercial Investments' request Monday for a change of use to operate mixed occupancy of commercial and residential use in an I-2 zone at 26 Union St.
"For the next couple of years, we are going to focus on housing in North Adams," Moresi said. "This will be one of three projects and it will be mixed-use redevelopment of the former Wall-Streeter Shoe Co. We are bringing back the name."
Moresi said the plan is to build high-end housing on the second and third floors that will range from one to two-bedroom units. The first floor will remain office space.
