Letter: Support for Williamstown Planning Board Recommendations
Letter to the Editor,
06:15PM / Sunday, May 08, 2022

To the Editor:

I support the Williamstown Planning Board's bylaw recommendations. They represent a good first step towards reducing the artificial barriers in our decades-old zoning map.

While some have criticized the board for moving too fast, I found the process deliberate and thorough. The board engaged the community in an open discussion. There was a spirited debate, with many opportunities for community input. The original proposal was changed in response to suggestions received along the way, which reflected the board's willingness to listen and respond to the community.

The final product (1) removes barriers for apartments above businesses and small scale multi-unit

Letter: Support Ken Kuttner for Planning Board
Letter to the Editor,
06:00PM / Sunday, May 08, 2022

To the Editor:

We are so blessed to have two thoughtful, dedicated community members running for the open Planning Board seat. I'm writing to share my support for Ken Kuttner because of the vision and approach he will bring to the planning board at this time.

The Planning Board has proposed zoning changes that are meant to address the need for more inclusive housing in Williamstown, a need embraced by both candidates. In Ken's "meet the candidate" video (on his website along with a lot more about Ken), he does a great job of explaining that — while he supports the planning board proposals to increase density in general residence — there are better, more

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:15AM / Friday, May 06, 2022
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Whoever wins a Planning Board seat in Tuesday's town election will not have a say in the zoning bylaw amendments that go to town meeting one week later.   But they had some things to say about those proposals in a forum hosted last month by the local chapter of the League of Women Voters.   Carin DeMayo-Wall and Kenneth Kuttner each have spoken before the Planning Board directly to argue for and against some of the most discussed bylaw amendments the board has proposed.   On Tuesday, voters will decide whether to give Kuttner or DeMayo-Wall a five-year term on the five-person Planning Board.   Not surprisingly, several of the questions at

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:05AM / Thursday, May 05, 2022
  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Faced with three Select Board candidates who each have served on the town's diversity committee and made equity and inclusion a cornerstone of their respective campaigns, some town residents may have trouble picking just two when they go to the polls next Tuesday.   One of the trio offered some helpful advice.   "If you're deciding between myself and Jane [Patton], please vote for Jane," Bilal Ansari said last week.   Ansari made the comment during a candidate forum hosted by the local chapter of the League of Women Voters.   He later clarified that he was not running against Patton, the lone incumbent on the ballot
