BELCHERTOWN — Sen. Eric P. Lesser joined local officials, including Reps. Susannah Whipps and Tom Petrolati and Board of Selectmen members Brenda Aldrich, Ed Boscher and Gail Gramarossa, to cut the ribbon officially opening the Christopher Heights Assisted Living Facility in Belchertown on Wednesday.
“This is yet another major development happening in Belchertown. This one is particularly exciting because it is the first new property opened on the old State School site, the first major step toward redeveloping and reusing this land that has been vacant for far too long,” said Sen. Lesser.
The project was supported in part by a MassWorks infrastructure grant. Representatives from MassDevelopment and MassHousing were also present to celebrate the opening.
