Police Urge Caution Due to Minute Man Race on Sunday

Westport Police have issued an advisory warning of busy roadways on Sunday for the the Westport Young Woman’s League 39th annual Minute Man Race from 7 a.m to 10:30 a.m.

The road race begins at Compo Beach and uses many of the roads in the Compo Beach area, said Lt. Eric Woods.

Organizers are expecting approximately 1,300 participants, he said.

“Roads in the area will be open to vehicular traffic, but motorists are advised to travel through the area safely as there will be a significant increase of pedestrians in the roads during this event,” Woods said.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 233 Hillspoint Road

WestportNow.com Image
An application for a permit to demolish the building at Westport’s 233 Hillspoint Road is in process. Built in 1900, the two-story structure has 3,575-square feet, is situated on a .13-acre property and changed ownership in September 2014 for $2 million. Because the structure was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. Until 2015 for 15 years, it was home to Positano Ristorante, now located exit to the Westport Country Playhouse. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
