village gets permit
LUDLOW — The District 2 Environmental Commission issued an Act 250 permit Friday to Timber Creek and five other partners to build a 208-unit village at Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow.
The permit will allow the developers to build 22 single-family homes, 32 duplex buildings, nine townhouse condominiums, a base lodge for homeowners, two ski lifts, seven ski trails, access roads, parking lots and a community water system. The proposed development will be situated on 268 acres, which includes the Carnes Parcel and the Miller Tract in Ludlow, and the proposed residential recreational community will be a private access development. The owners and guests will have access to Okemo ski trials and amenities and there will be no public access, according to the applicants.
The partners submitted the Act 250 permit application in October 2012.MORE IN This Just In
