P&Z denies one affordable housing plan; agrees to settle another

The Planning and Zoning Board Tuesday night agreed to a proposed settlement for an affordable housing project at 1556 New Haven Avenue. The proposed settlement now moves to the land use litigation docket for a hearing on May 7 at 10 a.m. in Hartford.
The proposed settlement includes several conditions, one of which reduces the project from eight units to seven units.
The board voted 8 to 2 to deny a proposed affordable housing complex at 460 Bic Drive. After the meeting, Attorney Thomas Lynch commented on the vote saying that he has already been in a conference call with the judge overseeing the land-use litigation docket. Lynch said he expects a hearing will be scheduled on the denial.
The board reviewed a proposal to construct 15 apartments at 14 Gulf Street for another affordable housing project. The board will discuss and possibly vote on the application at its April 21 meeting.
