First came a text amendment to permit a 60-foot movie theater downtown.
The next proposed change involves 35 Church Lane — the Victorian building next to the YMCA.
Next Thursday (October 20, 7 p.m., Town Hall ), the Planning and Zoning Commission meets to discuss a zoning map amendment that would permit a developer’s request to permit a building almost 4 times the size of what’s currently allowed.
Four times the size. On a narrow, traffic-clogged, 1-way street.
The handsome building now houses several offices.
In the application, the developer says he will explore “several possible amendments to the zoning regulations.”
What are they?
How would they change downtown?
What will happen next?
And — most importantly — what do Westporters think of all this?
