Proponents of a planned senior housing facility on the town-owned Baron’s South property expected the worst as they appeared en masse at the Westport Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) tonight.
The fear: the P&Z could deny text amendment 677 and effectively kill the project that has been eight years in the making.
Instead, project supporters got a reprieve, as P&Z Chairman Chip Stephens, with an agreement from First Selectman Jim Marpe who put forth the amendment, decided to keep the matter open until the commission’s Sept. 4 meeting.
“I think it’s important that you as a commission have a dialogue, and that the people have dialogue,” Marpe said.
