Planning and Zoning to Revisit Poquonock Development Decision

The planning and zoning commission tabled two decisions related to the proposal to construct a residential development off of Poquonock Avenue.

Planning and Zoning to Revisit Poquonock Development Decision

While an extensive public hearing and the planning and zoning commission's request for more information regarding traffic implications of the construction of Poquonock Commons, LLC's Village at Poquonock delayed decisions on the proposal's detail and subdivision plans, the commission is scheduled to take action Tuesday night.

The commission's previous meeting, held on Nov. 14, was highlighted by the number of residents who showed up to speak against and in support of the proposal.

Residents like Rich Schuler, who happens to own Poquonock Avenue's Tunxis Grill & Pizzeria, said they welcome the project with open arms, particularly because it is being built by Windsor residents and will bring young families to town.

Conversely, opposition to the project was marked by residents' concerns regarding the introduction of a relatively large rental population (62 apartments and 42 townhouses are included in the project's proposal) to the area and the problems increased traffic to one of Windsor's busiest roads will have on the local quality of life.

Tuesday's meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in town hall council chambers.
