‘Westport Won’ with Kemper-Gunn Vote

By James Lomuscio

Westport developer David Waldman said he would have preferred a unanimous, positive report from the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) Thursday night on First Selectman Jim Marpe’s request to use town property to relocate the historic Kemper-Gunn House. Image

Instead, a deeply divided P&Z voted 4 to 2 with 1 abstention to move the 1885-built Victorian at 35 Elm St. to .13 acres of town-owned land in the Baldwin Parking Lot, eliminating about two dozen spaces.

“As much as you like a unanimous vote, a win is a win, and I think Westport won last night” said Waldman, who is moving the house to save it from demolition as he proceeds with the Bedford Square project on Church Lane.

Selectwoman Helen Garten, who headed the Kemper-Gunn Advisory Group, said she “definitely” agreed.
