With New Committee Formed, Downtown 2020 Disbands

By James Lomuscio

Westport’s Downtown 2020 Committee, appointed two years ago by former First Selectman Gordon Joseloff to plan for current and future developments, officially disbanded today to make way for First Selectman Jim Marpe’s Downtown Steering Committee (DSC) announced earlier this week. Image

Marpe has stated that the 14-member DSC to be headed by Dewey Loselle would take a “new project management approach” to the efforts.

“This is a little bit of a sad meeting because for all intents and purposes, it is our last meeting,” said G. Kenneth Bernhard, acting chairman of Downtown 2020 since its founder Lou Gagliano resigned last spring.

Gagliano, who had been expected to phone in from Georgia but did not, quit after being at constant loggerheads with the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z), some of its members contending the advisory committee usurped the P&Z’s planning role.
