Judge: P&Z Acted Properly Denying 8-30g Project

By James Lomuscio

A Hartford Superior Court judge’s ruling to dismiss an affordable housing lawsuit against the town involving a proposed 48-unit multi-family housing project at the busy intersection of Kings Highway North and Wilton Road brought cheers today from town officials. Image

Town Attorney Ira Bloom, who successfully argued the town’s case, said it was the first 8-30g decision involving the town in his memory. He said the developer has 20 days to file an appeal.

The suit was filed under the 8-30g state law, which allows developers to override local zoning laws if a municipality does not have 10 percent of its housing stock listed as affordable, which Westport does not.

In dismissing the lawsuit filed more than a year ago by Stamford developer Richard K. Freedman, Judge Marshall Berger said the commission properly reviewed the environmental impact of the proposal by Freedman’s Garden Homes Management Corp.
