Oppose Westport Terrace Views - A Proposed Project to Demolish the Westport Inn and Replace it with a 200 Unit Multi-Family Apartment Complex
This petition had 1,355 supporters
Ranger Properties, the current owner/developer of the Westport Inn at 1595 Post Road East and Phil Craft* a local developer, propose to demolish the Inn and to replace it with a 200 unit multi-family apartment complex. The developer is using the Connecticut Affordable Housing Statute to bypass Westport’s zoning laws and build an apartment complex that would never be permitted under the existing local zoning laws. The proposed complex would contain 363,328 square feet, 5 stories (with balconies and roof amenities), and 370 parking spaces on less than 3 acres of land. This unprecedented development would rise in excess of 80 feet above an already elevated grade and tower over adjacent residential neighborhoods. The proposed project violates numerous Westport zoning laws concerning height, density, wetlands and use. Westport United is not against affordable housing or responsible development however this project would overwhelm the community and put incredible pressure on schools, traffic, emergency response and life safety; resulting in significant public health and safety concerns.
Please sign this petition to indicate your opposition to this project.
* From the minutes of Westport Conservation Commission meeting on November 19th.
