Subject: Elm Court Project! 

To the Stockbridge Board of Selectmen, 

I have proudly lived in Lenox on Old Stockbridge Rd. for over 23 years and owned an Art & Antiques business in Lenox for 37 years. 

My wife and I strongly support this new resort at Elm Court on Old Stockbridge Rd. in Lenox and Stockbridge. We have many large wonderful venues in Lenox; like the Cranwell Resort & Health Spa, Eastover Resort, Canyon Ranch Health Spa, Kripalu Yoga Center, Shakespeare & Co, and Tanglewood; none of which negatively affect our life here. They make our life better. 

Supporting this clean, quality business is the right thing to do! The project will create many jobs, hire local services and bring in skilled people who will buy homes, raise their family here and support our economy. This business will attract people from all over the world, who will spend money in our towns. 

I find it sad that a few neighbors on Old Stockbridge Rd are fighting the wrong battle. Why not support this project and ask for a sidewalk? I requested for a sidewalk on Old Stockbridge Rd over 20 years ago. I was told, "We would have one in two years" and we still do not. 

There isn't a town in the U.S. that wouldn't be excited to have a business like this come to their area.
