If Westporters have traffic and density concerns about 9 homes proposed for the 2.2-acre Daybreak property, I wonder how they’ll react to this news.
Next Tuesday (April 10, 7:30 p.m., Town Hall Room 309), the Architectural Review Board hears a proposal for an 81-unit residential development near one of our town’s most congested intersections.
The application — submitted for property owned by Cross Street, LLC — is for the property bordered by Post Road West, Lincoln Street and Cross Street.
That’s just beyond Kings Highway Elementary School and Westport Rehabilitation Complex (formerly Mediplex), on the crest of the hill leading to Riverside Avenue, Wilton Road and downtown Westport.
A couple of years ago, several blighted homes were bulldozed there. The lot has been vacant since — except for one house.
The development will consist of 27 1-bedroom homes, and 54 2-bedroom houses.
Oh, yeah: It’s an affordable housing proposal, under the state’s 8-30g statute.
Comments offered at the ARB meeting will be considered by the Planning & Zoning Commission, when they review the application.
