After six years of meetings, reboots and town approvals, the fate of a proposed senior housing complex on town-owned Baron’s South now lies with Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z). It closed its final public hearing tonight after 25 residents spoke, many in favor and some against the project.
P&Z Chairman Chip Stephens said that the matter would be decided after several work sessions, the first one held tonight. The next will be at its Sept. 18 meeting.
“It’s not going to be easy, and not everyone is going to like our decision,” said Stephens who, as on past occasions, said he had problems with text amendment 677, the approval of which will allow the project to move forward.
“You’ve got to trust us,” Stephens said.
