The Planning and Zoning Board recently approved with conditions a special permit and Coastal Area Management Site Plan, allowing construction of a single-family residence bordering the Long Island Sound at 127 Hillside Ave. The property in the R-5 zone will include a swimming pool within 25 feet of high tide.
Architect James McElroy filed the petition on behalf of property owner Donna Nayden of Weston, who bought the 0.1-acre property for $280,000 in July 2013. McElroy told the board that Hurricane Sandy heavily damaged the house formerly on the property in 2012. The house has since been demolished.
