Greylock Glen Campground Developer Holding Public Forum
ADAMS, Mass. — The developers chosen for the Greylock Glen camping area
are holding a public forum on Thursday, March 22, at 5:30 p.m. at the former St. Mark's Church on Commercial Street.
The $15 million development, tentatively titled "Greylock Glen Ecovillage," will be built along sustainable and green guidelines and include cabins and Airstreams.
The project was put out to bid by the town of Adams, which awarded the project to Shared Estates Asset Fund in December. Previous requests for proposals had elicited few or no bidders over the years.
Shared Estates operates several other lodging locations in the county, including The Playhouse in Lee and The Kemble in Lenox. Daniel Dus, CEO of Shared Estates, told the Selectmen lodging at the Glen was expected to be in operation by late 2024.
The developer's plan drew some critical comment, particularly over the concept of "mirrored" cabins that have been dropped from the proposal and disruption to trails in the Glen.
Shared Estates will present its plans and answers questions at Thursday's forum.
The Greylock Glen is a 1,063-acre site at the base of Mount Greylock, the state's highest peak. About 60 acres are targeted for limited development of trails, campgrounds, outdoor center, lodge and amphitheater. A $7.3 million outdoor center is currently under construction.
