Lost in last week’s hoopla over what Jon Stewart called “Blizzardpocalypsegeddon” were positive reviews given by the Planning & Zoning Commission to plans to redevelop the 2-acre Geiger’s property.
Neighbors — who have worried about the future of the garden center, which looks handsome from the front but shabby in back — were also largely positive.
So what will go on the site, at the corner of the Post Road and Morningside North?
A commercial/residential complex. It includes 12 residential rental units — 2 of them classified as “affordable” — along with a retail building.
And a bank.
That last part is particularly good news. Because — as every Westporter knows — if there’s one thing this town needs, it’s banks.
