Hawley Fire Fighters Render Aid At
Motor Vehicle Crash Site Outside Greenfield

On the afternoon of Sunday, March 12, 2023, as some of you may already know, there was a major motor vehicle accident involving a head on collision on the Mohawk Trail (Massachusetts Route 2) just west of Greenfield. What you may not be aware of is the fact that four members of the Hawley Volunteer Fire Department were passing through at the time and were therefore the first responders on scene.

Do We Need an Updated Town Plan? . . . Listening Session Scheduled for November 9 . . .

. . . Remember 1988?

Back then, folks would have thought you were nuts if you started rambling on about cell service, climate change, zip lines, internet, renewable energy, glamping, marijuana dispensaries, social media … etc., etc.! With the exception of a minor change in 2012, we haven’t altered our bylaws since then.

We think it is time to update these bylaws to reflect the present and hopefully address the future. Planning Boards don’t change bylaws. Voters do. Two thirds of them at a town meeting, to be exact. That’s why you are invited to a Planning Board Listening Session on Wednesday, November 9, at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Office.

You can see what we currently have “on the books” at http://www.townofhawley.com/wp-content/uploads/docs/Bylaws/Hawley-Protective-Bylaw-2012-comp.pdf.
What things do you think we should change?
