Steiner School says it was blindsided by solar array plan next door as town writes zoning bylaws

“Until last week the school did not understand the location, the size, or the timing of the project. We’re just attempting to collect as much information as possible to share with our families, hear their concerns, and work with Kearsarge Energy to bring about a solution.
— Tom Sternal, president of the board of trustees at the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School

Stockbridge withdraws from proposed shared services, administrator with Lenox and Lee

“I don’t see how Stockbridge could get swallowed up. Nothing changes. The charter is the same, the selectmen still have the same authority. What I would ask of Stockbridge is tell me why it can’t work, not what you’re afraid of. But if Stockbridge wants to investigate forming shared service agreement with West Stockbridge, I say go for it.”
— State Rep. William P. “Smitty” Pignatelli, reacting to decision by Stockbridge to withdraw from a shared services agreement with Lee and Lenox.
