Today, “06880” turns its gaze on a small stretch of land near King’s Highway Elementary School.
Owners of the facility everyone calls Mediplex — officially (and generically) the Westport Health Care Center — want to demolish 2 homes on Lincoln Street, and replace them with a 26-car parking lot.
The houses are something rare in Westport: apartments.
Some neighbors are opposed. They worry about lighting, dumpsters, plowing — and the look of the neighborhood.
They also note that when Mediplex was built — and for much of its existence –owners said that as an assisted living facility, they didn’t need much parking.
The houses are in an area deemed residential, but near a commercial zone. Mediplex would like the zoning changed.
