Details of tonight's (April 10) Williamstown Planning Board meeting on zoning rewrite

April 10, 2018 Meeting (PLEASE NOTE: Due to capacity crowds on April 3 this meeting will be held in the Elementary School Auditorium at
​​
 7:30PM)

The planning board is proposing a complete new zoning for almost all of the town.
See the links below.  If you live in the rural residence zone this will have tax consequences for you.

Note this is included in the attached:
ARTICLE C - REDUCING LOT SIZE IN RURAL RESIDENCE
To see if the Town will vote to amend the Williamstown Zoning By-Laws, §70 of the Code of the Town of Williamstown as follows:
Amend §70-4.3 by changing the minimum lot size in Rural Residence 2 from 2.5 acres to 1.5 acres.
This proposed change alters the lot size requirement in Rural Residential 2, zoning which is all of Williamstown, below 1,150 feet above sea level and  outside of town water and sewer service. Lot size would be reduced from 2.5 acres to 1.5 acres. Lot frontage will remain at 150 feet.   
Here's the narrative that goes along with it:

Pot shop plans August opening in Williamstown, projects $350/ounce pricing

Posted by Bill Densmore

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Operators of a marijuana "store" opening in the Colonial Shopping Center in August took questions at a public meeting attended by about 22 people on Saturday morning (Sept. 24) at the Williams Inn. The initial opening will serve recreational customers, with medically certified users coming later. Projected cost of marijuana: $350 an ounce. 

Josh Ferranto, Joshua Silver and Brendan McKee are among directors of Silver Therapeutics Inc., the applicant to open the store; one of three they hope to establish under Massachusett's new "legal pot" statute and regulations.  Silver, a real-estate attorney from Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and the company's CEO, and McKeen, who lives in Quincy, Mass., did most of the talking.  McKeen is chief financial officer. Ferranto is operations director.

Silver, who is the company's CEO, filed on Feb. 23  a siting application with the state  which projects the company will have $610,000 in revenue in 2019 and will lose $172,000 in that first year. In year two it projects positive cash flow of $124,000 on $682,000 in revenues; in 2021 revenues of $727,000 and positive cash flow of $414,000 are projected.  patients/customers will grow from 175 a year to 323 a year, representing 4,200 visits in 2019 and 7,752 visits in 2021; the average visit will involve purchase of a quarter-ounce of marijuana at an estimated cost of $350 per ounce in 2019, dropping to $300 an ounce by 2021. 

Some points raised during the hour-long meeting: 
  • The firm is working on a website, at http://agtherapeutics.com, which McKeen said should be live in 7-10 days with information about the company and its principals. Silver Therapeutics chief operating officer, Donald "Donnie" Douglas, is based in Washington state, and owns American Mary, a marijuana shop in Seattle, Silver said.  Application materials say John West, also in Seattle, will be lead grower.
  • From the audience, retired Williamstown pediatrian Michael Sussman expressed concern "that people using marijuana are using it in a responsible way" and that the shop would not inadverently result in minors getting access to marijuana. He said he hopes town officials hold the shop to a "higher standard" than it holds liquor stores.
  • Silver said by law the store will have redundant security systems and patrons -- both medical users and adult recreational users -- will have to show their driver's license and registration card twice -- once to enter the shop and once at checkout.  Answering questions, Silver said the shop will seek to weed out any underage buyers but there is little they can do once a qualified buyer of legal age leaves the premises other than notify police of any suspicious activity.
  • From the audience, Williamstown resident Mark Draper observed that safe, adult use of marijuana was a community challenge, not exclusively the responsibility of the planned dispensary. "Education comes from within a household," he said. "A corporation can only do so much."
  • "There are things we want to do to engage tihe community," said McKee, who will be the store's manager.  "We're going to be spending a lot of time here." McKeen said he was a graduate of Amherst College who now lives in Quincy and expects to get an apartment in Williamstown.
  • The Town of Williamstown will receive three percent of all sales through a pass through of state taxes totaling 20 percent for recreational sales, said Jasoh Hoch, Williamstown town manager, who attended the briefing.  The shop has also agreed to make a once-a-year flat-amount donation of $5,000 to drug-awareness efforts. (For iimportant details of revenues to the town, see Hoch's email at the bottom of this post). 
  • Because federally chartered banks are forbidden to have marijuana businesses as depositors, Silver said the shop will mostly deal in cash; but little will be kept on site; it will be moved to a cultivation facility to be built in Orange, Mass., the location of its second shop. A third shop location is not yet announced, he said.  Century Bank, a state-chartered bank, may be able to handle their banking needs.
  • Silver Therapeutics Inc. was originally set up as a non-profit corporation based upon requirements of state regulations.  But Silver says the state realized that was making it hard for proponents to raise investment and so the state is now permitting for-profit structures and Silver Therapeutics is converting. Silver told one meeting attendee after the formal presentation that the company seeks $4 million in investment. 
Other people involved in Silver Therapeutics, according to its Aug. 2017 application filed with the state  are John West and Michel S. Evanusa.  The application lists Evanusa, a New York time-share and condominium attorney, as a director of Silver Therapeutics, committing $500,000 in initial capital to the company. An earlier April, 2017, filing bears Evanusa's signature stating her commitment to make $2.0 million available to the company.  Sliver said he didn't want to"say too much about our investors" and said "investors are still coming in."  In a subsequent email exchange, Silver said Evanusa is his aunt and her commitment is a line of credit. 

TOWN'S REVENUE OPPORTUNITY EXPLAINED

An email received from Williamstown Town Manager Jason Hoch explains three sources of public revenue the town expects would result from opening of the Silver Therapeutics shop:   (1) An annual payment to the town of 3% of gross revenues. (2) Another 3%  local-option tax on non-medical retail marijuana sales in town which Hoch will propose for adoption at Town Meeting in May and (3) A pre-negotiated annual lump-sum payment of $5,000 to support public drug abuse prevention, treatment or education programs.

To: Bill Densmore

Bill -

There are multiple streams of funding to the town. First, for both the medical and retail operations, the Town has entered into Host Community Agreements. These each call for 3% of gross revenue to be paid to the Town annually. Under the guidelines from the state, these are restricted use. From the agreement:

"Company shall make the Annual Payments set forth in Paragraph 2, above, to the Town of Williamstown. The Treasurer of the Town shall hold the Annual Payments in a separate account, to be expended by the Town without further appropriation pursuant to G.L. c.44, §53A, or otherwise in trust, for the purposes of addressing the potential health, safety, and other effects or impacts of the Facility on the Town and on municipal programs, services, personnel, and facilities.  While the purpose of the Annual Payments is to assist the Town in addressing any public health, safety, and other effects or impacts the Facility may have on the Town and on municipal programs, services, personnel, and facilities, the Town may expend the Annual Payments at its sole and absolute discretion. Notwithstanding the Annual Payments, nothing shall prevent the Company from making additional donations from time to time to causes that will support the Town, including but not limited to local drug abuse prevention/treatment/education programs."

The Town is required to report annually how those funds have been expended. And worth noting that 3% of sales is the maximum currently allowed under the state regulations

Next, there is a separate local option tax, that can be voted on at Town Meeting for up to an additional 3% of tax on retail marijuana sales (not medical). We intend to bring that article to Town Meeting this May. Those funds are unrestricted revenues for the general fund. At this point, we have not considered further restrictions on those, since will already have the restricted funds in a great amount from the two HCAs.

Lastly, the retail HCA includes a separate requirement for an annual additional contribution for public education. (It appears that your bullet may be read as a one time only payment.) From the agreement:

"The Company, in addition to any other payments specified herein, shall annually contribute to non-profit entity or entities in an amount no less than five thousand dollars ($5,000) for the purposes of  drug abuse prevention/treatment/education programs (the “Annual Donations.”) The education programs shall be held in Williamstown and those communities adjacent to Williamstown. Prior to the selection of a non-profit entity program for this purpose, the Company will review their intentions with the Town, acting through its Town Manager and Chief of Police to ensure that the proposed programming is consistent with community needs.  The Annual Donations shall not be considered part of the Annual Payment to the Town."

Hope this helps. Thanks for checking.

Ann McCallum resigns from Williamstown Planning Board but supports new zoning effort and will stay for April 3 meeting



UPDATE (April 5, 2018)

The town has set up a website with an FAQ about the zoning proposal that explains more of the rationale for the proposed bylaw. The Planning Board can be reached by email at planningboard@williamstownma.gov.

Also: iBerkshires coverage of April 3 Planning Board meeting

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Architect Ann McCallum said on Tuesday that she plans to continue to serve on the Planning Board at least through its April 3 meeting, when proposed changes in the town's zoning will be discussed.  She also said she generally supports the board's initiative but she expects some changes will be offered at the meeting.


RELATED LINKS:
Selectmen hear negative comments from citizens about zoning rewrite (iBerkshires)

"I think the nuances have been lost to the public and I think we are going to simplify it to make it clearer to more people," McCallum told GreylockNews.com. "Parity issues have come up a lot and I think we will reduce the nuances in order to increase the feeling that everybody is being treated equally."

Among changes likely to be made in the proposal:
  • A reduction to four from six in the number of housing units into which an existing residential building may be subdivided without special zoning approval. The present law provides for only two-unit buildings as a matter of right.
  • An expansion of some provisions of the proposed changes so that they apply equally to most of the town's General Residence district, rather than just to the proposed new districts.
McCallum said the zoning proposal, which the board has been working on for more than a year in public meetings, has at least two objectives in mind:
  • Create opportunities for younger residents and new families in town to find living options other than single-family homes, on the grounds this may increase housing affordability.
  • Update zoning so that it more accurately reflects the actual "built environment" in town's urban core rather than the aspirations of planners who wrote the original zoning in the early 1950s. T
An intended result of the second item, McCallum said, is to provide property owners -- whether developers or residents -- more flexibility in what can be done with their buildings and lots without having to go through a planning-and-zoning hearing process with the town and obtain special permitting.

McCallum's view is that the effect of the changes will not be to permit larger buildings on lots, but create more flexibility with what can be done with those buildings. "Becoming more dense is perhaps not the real answer," she said. "The real point is to have more smaller units available for people, not necessarily affordable housing but different options for people. We want to encourage more young people to come to town -- and they may not be wanting a single-family house."

McCallum notes that her family owns a large Victorian at Cole Avenue and Main Street. Her view is that it makes sense for such buildings to be able to include more, smaller living units rather than to be somewhat orphaned by virtue of their size becoming less desirable. She said her house was divided into three apartments in the 1940s, something that has not been possible to do since the 1955 Zoning By-law took effect (without a special permit process), but that would be allowed "by right" with passage of the changes proposed.

42 Hoxsey Update: Wanda Bubriski reports receipt of letter from Williams; historic commission meets April 12

Subject: 42 Hoxsey Update

The College's written response to our letter arrived last Friday evening from Rita Coppola-Wallace, Executive Director, Design and Construction, at Williams (see attached, Response).  It's safe to say that many if not all of us who signed the Friends letter, understand the College's academic and residential needs.  What is striking about the Williams letter is the lack of any reference to the historic preservation needs of the town.  We are working on talking points for preserving the house--which is equally an argument on behalf of the town and saving its own historic presence.

Planners advancing major Williamstown rezoning to make multi-dwelling units and apartments a "matter of right"; some neighbors concerned


Posted by Bill Densmore

The Williamstown Planning Board is preparing to seek a Town Meeting vote in May that will dramatically expand the ability of developers to replace single-family residences with muti-dwelling units and apartments in a bid to make the town more attractive to people who don't want to buy a house -- and to increase the town's core-area population.


RELATED LINKS: 



That's the impression being given by neighbors in the email received below.   Williamstown currently has nine zoning districts.  The proposal, if approved by town meeting voters in May, would increase that to 13.

The new districts would cover Spring Street, Southworth Street, Cole Avenue  nearby areas.   For example, a new "Village Residence 3" district would encompass Southworth Street where it abuts the Williams College campus and where the college owns multiple single-family homes. If adopted, the new rule would appear to allow the college or other owners to raze and construct six-unit apartment or condominiums along Southworth without zoning approval. 
"The proposed change in zoning removes our voices from this process entirely and encourages non-owner occupied development," Dante and Kirsta Birch, of 57 Maple St., in Williamstown, say in one email. 
The Planning Board staff has posted both the proposed language -- without any layman's explanation of what it will do -- and a map showing the new districts.  The map is reproduced above.  Zoning bylaw changes must be approved by a two-thirds majority vote at Town Meeting in May.

To get the proposed changes on the Town Warrant, the Planning Board must first majority vote to send them to the Selectmen. The selectmen will then chose whether to put the changes on the voting warrant with a positive or negative recommendation, or no recommendation.  The next Planning Board when a vote could be taken is scheduled for April 11 -- but the board can hold a meeting at any time with 48-hours public notice.

The elected Planning Board's members are Chris Kapiloff (chairman), Chris Winter, Amy Jeschawitz, Susan Puddester, Ann McCallum and alternate member Bruce McDonald.

Writer's question: To what extend are any members with connections to Williams required to abstain from voting on these changes? If they work for Williams? If they are married to a senior Williams administrator?

Subject: UPDATE: Williamstown is rezoning your neighborhood for max density
Date: March 13, 2018 at 8:04:42 AM EDT
To: "Dante Birch @ Home" <dantebirch@gmail.com>

Yesterday's Select Board meeting:
Views of the Planning Board as presented by Chris Kapiloff:
In summary, Chris presented the board's interest in increasing the population of the town. He cited the need for additional housing, a changing demographic of professionals that do not seek single-occupancy housing until their 40's and an interest to increase the population density of Williamstown. The Planning Board believes the best way to achieve this is that like housing should be relegated to go into like neighborhoods thus 6-8 units properties into the proposed "Mill #1", 4-6 unit properties into the "Mill #2" area and so on. What was not covered or addressed was nonresident owned properties and how the new proposed regulation would cater to commercial interests. The details of the proposal is presented on the town's website.
Views of the Select Board:
Response to the presentation was measured. It was noted that the plan, as presented, was a dramatic and radical departure from the established zoning of the town, the scope of which had not been seen in recent memory. The Planning Board was also congratulated on the significant time invested and energy expended on the scope of proposed changes.
There was some concern voiced on the part of the Select Board that the changes were maybe too dramatic and wide sweeping and that the proposed regulation, as written, did not address the issues of adaptively reusing existing properties. There was also concern that the proposal possibly favored the demolishing of existing buildings and construction of new apartment structures. There was particular concern on the part of the Select Board for Southworth Street. One member of the board stated they had been approached by Fred Puddester concerning the upcoming need of the college to house incoming new-hire professors. They also stated they encourage the townspeople to make their voices heard at the next Planning Board meeting.
Moving forward:

There was a correction that the Planning Board meeting advertised on the website for tomorrow is not relevant. The next meeting for the Planning Board is scheduled for April 10th; this can, and very well may, be rescheduled for between March 13th and April 10th, with only two days' notice. The only state requirement for public notice being it is posted aside the front door of Town Hall two days prior.
The important point is that there is limited opportunity to reshape the Planning Board proposal and to hear public input. If they (the Board) decide to vote and pass the proposal at the meeting, they can then move the proposal on to the Select Board. The Select Board may or may not weigh in on the proposal before it transitions the proposal to a warrant, then onto the docket for voting at Town Meeting on May 15. The best chance to have input on the proposal would be at the next Planning Board meeting. Traditionaly, the Select Board has voted its approval up or down and that assessment has been part of the warrant article presented at town meeting. However, just one or two meetings ago, the board chair proposed that the board retain the prerogative to pass any article along without comment, and the board agreed unanimously. 

Currently there would be 2/3rds majority vote required for town approval; however, there is currently pending state legislation that might change this requirement to a 50% majority that could be passed and come into effect in time to be relevant. I ask that if anyone becomes aware of a scheduled Planning Board Meeting they please pass it along so we can make our neighbors aware. Although I may have my own personal beliefs and biases, I truly believe the priority is to have as many stakeholders at the table when such dramatic and long reaching changes are being ushered through our local government.
Sincerely,
Dante Birch
PS- Special thanks to Kevin Kennefick and Roger Lawrence for helping recount last nights events and fact checking.

More than 100 people "sign" letter to Williams president seeking stay of execution for razing of historic Hoxsey Street house; hearing Tuesday?


The letter below asserts "misrepresentations" by the college.  Among signers are present and former members of the town's historical commission and Historical Museum.  The 42 Hoxsey Street home was the residence of the late Dagmar Bubriski, who was a well-known resident of the town. Ms. Bubriski's daughter writes that the town's Historical Commission has scheduled a meeting for tomorrow (Tuesday, March 13, 2018) in Town Hall at 3 p.m. to consider the matter.

Friends of 42 Hoxsey Street, Williamstown, Mass.

March 12, 2018

To the President and Trustees of Williams College, and the Williamstown Historical Commission:

We are shocked, outraged and saddened to hear of the decision of Williams College to tear down the house at 42 Hoxsey Street—a decision representing callous disregard of the town's history. Dating from 1880, it graces the 1889 Map of Williamstown; it is one of the grandest residences still standing in the heart of town.  It is a focal point of the street—a historic district.

Last April 3, when Williams College purchased the property from Wanda Bubriski, whose family had resided on the property since 1954, the College said it intended to use it for construction offices, then faculty housing.  Multiple inaccuracies and misrepresentations characterize the College's description of the condition of the house in the advertisement for its sale. Over $200,000 of improvements were made to the house between 2014 and 2016.  Among the improvements are: asbestos removed; new plumbing for two new bathrooms installed; complete house re-wired and converted to gas; new gas furnace and water heater installed; entire interior painted; new windows on second floor installed; tiger oak flooring fully sanded and stained; leaded glass windows preserved and reconstructed. These enhancements augment the 9-foot ceilings, gracious spatial arrangement, and details like the French doors and Bennington ceramic fireplace surround.   

Williams's advertisement presented a deteriorating construction—an insult to all the tradesmen and women who worked so hard on the house.  Most people who have walked through that fan-lighted front door into the capacious central hall respond with a "WOW"—including your own staff. Distortions and lack of accuracy regarding the condition is reprehensible.

To the Historical Commission: 
The house and barn at 42 Hoxsey Street embody a rare example of unaltered spatial layout, with its balloon-construction visible in the attic and its wrap around porch can be seen on the 1889 Map. The house carries cultural significance as well contributing to the fabric of the community, its history and values. From 1954 to 2011, it was the home of Dagmar Bubriski, a community leader, a columnist, a radio host, and a widow at 37 who raised a family of four while being the loudest cheerleader and staunchest defender of Williamstown historic and cultural preservation. This history deserves to be preserved.  We object to this house being torn down and its history lost.

Sadly, the College's attitude toward historic preservation is nearly non-existent. When it serves the corporate expansion needs of its ever-increasing bureaucracy, it simply plows down historic structures. (Examples include the Opera House, Harper House—and if Williams had had its way decades ago, we would have lost Van Rensselaer House— fortunately, part of it ended up in the Metropolitan Museum of Art).

We strongly urge Williams reconsider its decision to tear down and throw away this important historical building.
