“David is smart, dynamic and strategic-minded, with not only a strong background in new media, but a firm belief in a one-on-one relationship with our patrons,” said Michael Ross, Playhouse managing director. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board.”

P&Z Relaxes Restaurant Alcohol Restrictions

By James Lomuscio

After more than an hour of debate, paper shuffling and semantic ballet, the Westport Planning and Zoning Commission voted 6 to 0 tonight to approve a text amendment that would ease restrictions on restaurants, most notably, allowing more of them to serve alcohol.

Though not stated in the amendment, the ruling does away with the 1,500-foot distance required between establishments with liquor licenses. There are currently 23 in town, a number poised to increase with the removal of distance buffers.

In reading the proposal, P&Z Chairman Ronald Corwin said the commission felt that Text Amendment 613, which allows more opportunities dining and entertainment venues, was consistent with the town’s 2007 Comprehensive Plan of Development.

He said the proposal would reinvigorate the downtown, attracting out-of-towners and giving a boost to nightlife.
