Westport to Honor Paul Newman With Nature Preserve

UPDATE The Town of Westport is proposing zoning changes that would create a 37-acre nature preserve honoring Paul Newman on town-owned land adjacent to the late actor’s Westport home. WestportNow.com Image

Westport First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff said the changes would affect a 7.5-acre parcel the Newman family donated to the town in 1997 and a 29.9-acre adjacent parcel the town acquired at the same time from the Poses family for $3.75 million.

“The preservation of this property as the ‘Newman/Poses Preserve’ is in keeping with his family’s wishes and will serve as a tribute to honor his memory,” Joseloff said in a letter to the Planning & Zoning Commission.

The commission originally scheduled a review of the requested zoning changes at its May 14 meeting but later postponed it until June 4, said Planning and Zoning Director Laurence Bradley.
