Sunday NY Times: $1 Million Often Buys a Westport Teardown

To Westporters savvy about housing prices, it’s nothing new, but Sunday’s New York Times cites Westport as among southern Connecticut communities where $1 million often buys a teardown.

Two of the three pictures illustrating the newspaper’s Connecticut section cover story show Westport homes, one for sale for $1.1 million and other for $2.3 million.

Ten years ago, $1 million bought a “pretty high-end home, but $1 million now is pretty much entry level,” said Mary Palmieri Gai, a broker at William Raveis of Westport.

“A million buys a tired house on half an acre or less that is waiting to be knocked down,” she said.

Deadline June 14 for Westport Arts Centers Members’ Show

As the second anniversary of the Westport Arts Center (WAC) gallery approaches, preparations are underway for the center’s annual members exhibition, “The Big Show 2004,” which opens in mid-July. Deadline for submissions is June 14.WAC.jpg

The show is an all-inclusive, multimedia visual arts exhibit held each summer that is open to all artists who are members of the Westport Arts Center.

“The ‘Big Show’ is aptly named for the quantity of work exhibited,” said Miggs Burroughs, a local artist and one of the organizers of the exhibit.

“I’m always impressed by the depth of talent and creativity we have here in our own backyard.

RTM Committees Rebuke Parks & Rec Commission on Winslow

By Chris Grimm

WestportNow Community Correspondent

Two committees of the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) have voted overwhelmingly to recommend “passive use” zoning for Winslow Park a direct rebuke to a recommendation by the town’s Parks and Recreation Commission.

The RTM Parks and Recreation Committee voted Tuesday night while the RTM Long Range Planning Committee voted Wednesday night.

At its May 10 meeting, the Parks and Recreation Commission had voted unanimously to recommend that the Planning and Zoning Commission adopt two Dedicated Open Space and Recreation District (DOSRD) classifications that could be applied to Westport parks and open spaces. 

The P&Z will discuss amending zoning regulations to add these two classifications at its June 3 meeting.
