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.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 20 Ketchum St.

WestportNow.com Image
Westport officials are reviewing an application to demolish the 20,000-square-foot office building at 20 Ketchum St. The 1974 building was sold in May for $5 million in a deal that included 23 Franklin St. The property on Ketchum Street is a part of a second planning and zoning application, which was filed last week, to revitalize Saugatuck. The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the first application in February (See WestportNow Feb. 8). (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

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.

Residents Express Concerns on House Regulations

By Jennifer Connic

Westport residents expressed concerns tonight over proposed zoning regulations changed geared to limit home sizes, including how the proposal would make many homes not conform to the zoning standards.

The proposed regulation changes, which the Planning and Zoning Commission discussed last week (See WestportNow March 9), include modification in height and coverage. The proposal is on the town’s Web site.

Tonight the commission and its consultant—Avon-based Planimetrics—were seeking comments on the regulations before the consultant produces a final version.

Gloria Gouveia, a landuse consultant, however, showed how the regulation changes would have an adverse effect on many of her clients, many she said were planning modest changes to their homes.

Winter Storm Warning Issued

The National Weather Service today upgraded its Winter Storm Advisory to a Winter Storm Warning for Westport and the tri-state area and said that 6 to 10 inches of snow is possible.

The warning is in effect from 5 a.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Saturday.

Rain will change to a mixture of sleet and snow after midnight, eventually turning to all snow late, an advisory said. Only light snow and sleet accumulations are expected by Friday morning.

But the advisory said that hazardous driving conditions are expected to develop for the early Friday morning commute as temperatures fall below freezing.
