Reception for Congressman Richard Neal
April 8, 2013, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
New Location: The Clark Art Institute, South Street, Williamstown
The location for the Washington Update by US Representative Neal has been changed to the Clark Art Institute. The League of Women Voters of Williamstown invites the public to come meet Rep. Neal on April 8 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Rep. Neal will speak about the challenges and opportunities he foresees for the 113th Congress. The event is free and open to all.
The LWV recognizes that both open space and affordable housing are important aspects of community life. The Williamstown LWV feels, however, that given the devastation of Hurricane Irene and the immediate human crisis for former residents of the Spruces, our town would be best served by development of a portion of the Lowry property – originally intended for a new high school — for housing.
The Spruces current location would replace the open space of the Lowry property with land accessible to the entire town for open space recreation. We look forward to hosting one or more discussions on this issue in the coming months.
