Notice of Grant to Address Zoning Bylaws

The Egremont Planning Board has received a grant award of $54,000 from the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development's Community Planning Grant program. Added to the grant is the Town's ARPA match of $6.000. 

The grant will enable the Planning Board to retain a qualified consultant to guide the process of updating the Town's Zoning Bylaws and Zoning Map changes, which are anticipated to result from the Vision 2035 Comprehensive Planning process, now underway.   The new grant will run through at least June 30, 2024.
