Northgate Resort's Ventures, LLC
On June 23, 2021, the Select Board received an Application from Northgate Resort Ventures, LLC, for a Special Permit to open a resort/campground on the Camp Emerson property in Hinsdale.
The Select Board has forwarded the application (which contains detailed plans, a traffic study, and maps of the property) to the Planning Board for review and their written recommendation on the matter. Once the Planning Board has completed a thorough review, culminating in an Open Meeting with Public Comment, they will forward their written recommendation to the Select Board for consideration and further action on the request.
The Select Board will then hold their own public hearing on the matter and accept written and verbal testimony before acting on the request. All documents related to this application and the dates and times of the meetings and the final hearing will be posted in advance on the Town's website, per Mass General Law.
We urge all interested in this matter to bookmark this page and revisit it frequently for up-to-date information from the Town.
