Pittsfield's Allendale Pines Plans Further Expansion

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Allendale Pines plans to expand the mobile home park with more than 20 additional lots.

"This would be an expansion of the existing Allendale Pines community, but it was served by a separate entrance and separate utilities."
