Great Barrington residents vote for affordable housing, against 5G service

May 03, 2023 12:47 am

Heather Bellow reports in The Berkshire Eagle that at a marathon annual town meeting May 1 in Great Barrington, voters decided against weakening short-term rental regulations approved last year and also strengthened zoning rules to help move affordable projects along. At the nearly five-hour meeting at Monument Mountain Regional High School voters also wanted no money to go to a developer with a housing project that doesn't include enough affordable units. Residents also approved the town’s $14.6 million budget for fiscal 2024, and Great Barrington's $19.89 million share of the Berkshire Hills Regional School District budget. And residents voted 115-42 to pause installation of 5G cell phone technology for further study on exposure limits to radio frequency emissions. Most experts do not believe 5G cell service hurts anyone, and it is widely available. Read more about this story in The Berkshire Eagle.
