North Adams Redevelopment Applying for Development Grants

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

The board also voted to apply for an extension of the Urban Renewal Plan.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Redevelopment Authority on Monday approved applications for two grants that will aid in determining the future of Western Gateway Heritage State Park and surrounding properties.
"The scope of work for this project if awarded will include a review of existing conditions which would include building and infrastructure assessments, development objectives, which would essentially create a new vision redevelopment for several properties owned by the city and the Redevelopment Authority," explained Zachary Feury of the Community Development Office. 
Mayor Thomas Bernard in August stated his intention to put the park back out to bid for requests for proposal. The property has been tied up for years, first with plans for a marketplace and housing that collapsed along with the economy nearly a decade ago and then with the proposed Extreme Model Railroad and Contemporary Architecture Museum. The museum had not responded to an updated offer to extend its option earlier this year. 
The technical assistance grant through MassDevelopment would provide support for a number of areas including planning and economic development, market feasibility, analysis, and RFP development and process. It would also aid in addressing site-specific challenges.
