Housatonic School rehab plans fizzle; it’s now back to square one for ideas

Housatonic Elementary School.

GREAT BARRINGTON — The town’s agreement with remodeling contractor Grayhouse Partners Inc. for the redevelopment of the former Housatonic Elementary School has been severed.

Now, the town is back to square one.

The Housatonic-based firm was the only organization to respond to the town’s third request for proposals for the former school by the August deadline, said Great Barrington Town Manager Mark Pruhenski.

As a result, Great Barrington entered into a one-year agreement with Grayhouse Partners, which was then extended an additional six months. That expired in June.

During that 18-month period, Pruhenski said the town was able to accomplish several tasks, including, but not limited to: developing site designs and parking plans, applying for and secure brownfields funding to assess hazardous materials, and meeting with funding agencies with Grayhouse Partners.
