School Budget Could Reach $114 Million in Five Years

By Jennifer Connic

School officials are projecting budget increases around 5 percent for the five years beyond the 2007-08 school year.

The Westport Board of Education discussed a five-year budget projection model during its meeting tonight. The school board has a $88.9 million 2007-08 school budget proposal, which is a 8.4 percent increase, that will be reviewed by the Board of Finance next week.

The budget model shows that the school budget will reach $114.2 million in the 2012-2013 fiscal year, and the budget is projected to increase 5.3 percent, 5.2 percent, 5.1 percent, 5.1 percent and 5 percent.

Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon said the model was created as a discussion tool during the budget approval process with the finance board and eventually the Representative Town Meeting.

Power Line Construction Restarts

Construction crews will be back working on Route 1 tonight as part of Connecticut Light and Power’s high-voltage power line project.

A moratorium had been in place over the last two months on construction on state roads for the project to construct a 340-kilovolt power line from Middletown to Norwalk, including along Route 1 in Westport.

Construction will take place near Compo Shopping Center, Goodwill, Westport Inn, Lincoln Street and Sylvan Road. Crews will also be in the vicinity of Sherwood Island Connector to Hillspoint Road.

Daytime construction will also continue on Imperial Avenue by crews moving a sewer line in part of the same project.

Youth Commission Seeks New Members

The Westport Youth Commission is seeking Westport high school students and adults from the community who want to serve on the commission.

“The Youth Commission serves as a public forum for youth issues, and advocates for youth needs and concerns in the community,” said said Human Services Director Barbara Butler.  “Its 30 members, 15 students and 15 adults, are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the First Selectman.”

The Youth Commission in the past created Toquet Hall, started the Compo Beach skate park and developed Speedial, a pocket-sized informational and help guide for teens. The commission also developed a comprehensive community plan to address underage drinking, sponsored outdoor summer movies for teens at the Levitt Pavilion and started the iMentor program, a student-run Internet safety program.

In addition, the commission continues its campaign to develop community support for its plans for a mini-golf course in the downtown area.

Sweet’s last day with the chamber will be March 30, and she has taken the position as executive director at the Tri-County United Way in Queensbury, N.Y.

“It’s an opportunity in my hometown,” Sweet said today. “It’s a chance for me to professionally and personally go home again. I love it here, but it will be nice to be closer to my friends and family.”

No one has been hired yet to replace her, she said, and the chamber’s executive board is examining what to do.

Gorham Historic District Expansion Planned

By Jennifer Connic

The people who live around the Gorham Avenue Historic District are hoping it expands later this year, and the Historic District Commission already has approved the first step in the process.

The current district consists of 24 homes on Main Street, Gorham Avenue and Caccamo Lane, and the neighborhood is seeking to add five homes along Wild Rose Road and the Aspetuck Land Trust’s Lees Canal Preserve, which is across Main Street from the district.

The Westport Representative Town Meeting originally approved the historic district’s creation last July, and some members stated then they’d like to see the district be bigger (See WestportNow July 11).

The Historic District Commission this week approved a historical study of the neighborhood, which is the first step in the process to expand the district.
