Letter: Williamstown's Proposed Zoning Changes Will Help Make Town More Diverse
Letter to the Editor,
02:00PM / Monday, May 30, 2022

To the Editor:

Dear Williamstown residents: Williamstown is in a housing crisis. People are getting pushed out of town as they see their rents increase by $500 and even $1,000 a month. Few are able to purchase homes without a cash offer above asking price. Williamstown is becoming even more elite, functioning like an exclusive gated community.

In order to have a diverse community where those who work here can live here, we need to pass Warrant Articles 39, 40 and 41. All Williamstown residents need to be able to create duplexes and multi-unit housing (of three to four units) by right, not by special permit. Of course, the properties and buildings would still have to abide by existing
