Are Great Barrington voters thinking about putting some kind of lid on pot?

GREAT BARRINGTON — There were cheers. There were jeers. And for a few residents, there were even some choked-back tears.

Around 100 people filled the seats and lined the walls of the Claire Teague Senior Center for the selectboard’s meeting.

Prior to the meeting, Housatonic residents stood along the driveway and on either side of the road near the entrance of the center, protesting the proposed 80,000- square-foot marijuana cultivation and manufacturing facility on 22 Van Deusenville Road by Fulcrum Enterprises LLC.

On the agenda that night was a public hearing for the entity, which is seeking a special permit. Before the group delivered its presentation, Stephen Bannon, chairman of the selectboard, laid down some rules on how the meeting would proceed.

“I don’t anticipate we’ll have a vote tonight,” he told the audience, adding that the selectboard was still waiting for a report from peer review consultants as well as a recommendation from the town’s Board of Health.
