To the editor:

It is refreshing to see visionaries making a meaningful investment and commitment to the Berkshires. We are neighboring homeowners on Interlaken Road and fully support the development efforts of the ex-DeSisto estate.

The proposed development will bring needed jobs to the area and increased tax revenues benefiting the local economy. Additionally, the resort, condo complex and single-family homes will draw people to relocate to the Berkshires, off-setting the declining population. It’s time to embrace these zoning and building plans rather than causing unnecessary hurdles.

I commend the property owner and managing partners for taking a bold risk to better our community for generations to come.
