Silverbrick LLC receives 1st approval to renovate Cabotville Mills in Chicopee

The City Council’s Zoning Committee voted 6-0 in favor of recommending Aaron Papowitz, founder of Siverbrick LLC and 4 Perkins LLC, which is the company proposing the project, be granted a special permit for the conversion.
