Correction: Wheelers Farms Road housing plan continues July 7 at P&Z
A hearing before the Planning & Zoning Board concerning a proposed housing development on Wheelers Farms Road will continue July 7.
At a June 16 Planning & Zoning public hearing, Timothy Hollister, attorney for Milford Developers LLC of Chatham, N.J., presented revised plans for the 26-acre parcel behind the Merritt Crossing office building at 440 Wheelers Farms Road, and south of the Crown Corporate Campus office buildings at 470 Wheelers Farms Road.
The P&Z hearing is continued to Tuesday, July 7, at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, and may continue beyond that to the July 21 meeting. (An earlier article had the incorrect date for the next portion of the hearing, and we apologize for the error.)
Hollister told the zoning board that the changes were prompted by a review of the proposal by Dr. Michael W. Klemens, a biologist and conservationist, on behalf of the Inland Wetlands Agency.
Residents have been turning out in force to protest the planned development.
The application is being filed under 8-30g of the Connecticut General Statues, which overrides local zoning regulations, but not inland-wetlands regulations.
