By Jennifer Connic

The fate of the Paul Rudolph-designed house at Westport’s 16 Minute Man Hill won’t be decided until the new year.

Stamford Superior Court Judge Taggart D. Adams today ordered no further demolition to the house until a Jan. 2 hearing can be held.

The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation is seeking a temporary injunction on the demolition of the house because it has found that it is eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places (See WestportNow Dec. 21).

Morley Boyd, Historic District Commission chairman who was present at the court proceedings, said a decision on the temporary injunction was put off until Jan. 2, and the two sides will argue their sides of the case then.

The extension is for 10 years beyond the current lease, which still has two years remaining. There is an option for Longshore Associates to renew twice for five additional years each time.

The Board Finance approved the lease earlier this month (See WestportNow Dec. 6), and the Board of Selectmen approved the lease the following week (See WestportNow Dec. 12).

During tonight’s public hearing, several neighbors spoke about issues of music from the Inn and it being too loud.

A demolition permit has not been issued by building officials, and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation will be seeking a temporary injunction on the demolition during a court hearing on Friday.

Workers were at the house around 4 p.m. with a small bulldozer, but an official with the crew who did not identify himself said the house was not going to be demolished today and would not be until no sooner than early next week.

Fire Inspector Nate Gibbons arrived at the scene at around 4 p.m. and later said an outside wall had been knocked down but no demolition work had been done to the house.

No Shoplifting Reported This Holiday Season

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

No larcenies have been reported to Westport police from downtown merchants, and a police presence may be a deterrent.

Sgt. Jerry Shannon, police public information officer, said today he has not seen any reports of larcenies this holiday season, but there is a possibility of them still happening.

The large chain retailers most times are required to call the company’s security department before calling police, he said.

A police presence downtown may be why there are no reported larcenies, he said.
