State Accepts North Adams Smart Growth Application

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city's application to the state's Smart Growth incentive program was accepted last month pending some revisions to its zoning plan.
 
The plan for two zoning overlay districts in the downtown under the state's 40R zoning was submitted in March after a public hearing late last year. The letter from the Department of Housing and Community Development was received June 28.
 
Final adoption of 40R will release $600,000 in state funding to the city to address the impacts from increased residential and commercial development.
 
"The purpose of Smart Growth zoning is to increase the supply while also decreasing the cost of housing," Zachary Feury, project coordinator at the city's Office of Community Development, reminded the Community Development Committee on Wednesday. "Smart Growth zoning achieves this by increasing the amount of land zoned for high density residential development."
