Join us for our May Talk on the Hill presented by Williams College students Annika Harrington and Regina Fink. The talk, entitled Low Density Development in Williamstown, will be a zoom presentation of their collaborative research as part of Professor Sarah Gardner’s Environmental Planning Class last fall. Based on their research, Annika and Regina will offer ideas on mitigating the negative effects of current rural sprawl and larger house construction trends. They will open the floor to questions and discussion on a topic of critical interest to the town. WRL hopes this talk will provide a platform for discussion.
