Lawmakers in Pittsfield, Massachusetts hope that the city council’s allocation of $1 million to help close the funding gap for the nascent Berkshire Innovation Center will spark momentum for the decade-old project. WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief JD Allen sat down with Mayor Linda Tyer to discuss a plan for the non-profit to take responsibility for its own lease, construction and ownership of the center.

Tyer says once the Berkshire Innovation Center secures a steady operating fund, the non-profit expects it would be at least 18 months before doors open.
