Great Barrington, North Adams Receive Funding For Downtown Initiatives


Massachusetts is funding downtown initiatives in communities at both ends of Berkshire County.North Adams and Great Barrington are each in line for about $10,000 as part of the Massachusetts Downtown Initiative. Expecting to wrap up a major main street renovation this year, Great Barrington town planner Chris Rembold says the money will be used to implement a downtown business and property owner group. 

“Something that’s really focused on the special needs, opportunities and attractions of downtown Great Barrington,” said Rembold.

North Adams’ grant will fund an analysis of street designs. Seven other communities including Amherst and Greenfield also received funding.
