Marpe Names Kemper-Gunn Advisory Group

Responding to Planning and Zoning Commission concerns, Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe today announced appointment of an advisory group to oversee the move and physical restoration of the 1885-built Kemper-Gunn House from Church Lane to the town-owned Baldwin parking lot. Image

Called the Kemper-Gunn Advisory Group (KGAG), it will be headed by Selectwoman Helen Garten, with members Dewey Loselle, chair of the Downtown Steering Committee, Matthew Mandell, chair of the Representative Town Meeting’s Planning and Zoning Committee, and Joseph Strickland, chair of the Public Site and Building Commission.

Marpe said the group will oversee development of a lease, other administrative tasks related to the move as well as plans for the future business operations envisioned for the Kemper-Gunn property. The house is being moved at developer expense to make way for the Bedford Square development at the Westport Weston Family Y building.

Appointment of the group was in response to complaints from several P&Z members at their April 3 meeting that no one from the town administration seemed to be in charge of shepherding approvals through the P&Z.
