Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Planning Board held a brief meeting on Monday night to approve one application and allow another to withdraw. 
The one approved was for Berkshire Printing & Embroidery, which is moving from 33 Main St., in the Berkshire Plaza, to 65 Main St., where Bella Sky Gifts and Avery Adams Massage & Boutique had been. 
Berkshire Printing is owned by Kristi and Ken Cooper. Ken Cooper told the board, during its Zoom meeting, that he did not plan on opening until the governor lifts the nonessential business lockdown for COVID-19. 
"As soon as the governor says we can open up, we'll open up," he said, outside of a possible scheduled pickup. He pointed out that the space is filled with boxes because they had been staying home so as not to be susceptible to the novel coronavirus.
An application by Rojo Wine Bar LLC to open a restaurant and wine bar at 28 Holden St. was allowed to be withdrawn without prejudice.
The board also approved a change of hours for DragonWell Tea Shop at 149 Eagle St. and and update of the Walmart sign by Action Sign Co.

North Adams City, School Officials Elect Daunis to School Committee

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — City and school officials on Thursday unanimously elected Emily Daunis to fill a vacant seat on the School Committee. 
Daunis, who ran unsuccessfully last year, was one of eight candidates who expressed interest in the vacancy.  
"I know how fortunate we are to have so many exceptional candidates and unfortunately we're only able to select one," said School Committee Vice Chairwoman Heather Boulger. "And I am putting forward the name of Emily Daunis, who's active already within the school system and is kind of catalyst in already making school policy change, and also happens to be the first runner up from the election from last year."
Boulger's nomination was seconded by City Councilor Jason LaForest.
