Almost two years after it was appointed by former First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, Westport’s Downtown 2020 Committee, which was constantly at loggerheads with the elected Planning and Zoning Commission over downtown planning efforts, got the ax today.
In its place, First Selectman Jim Marpe announced a Downtown Steering Committee (DSC), which he said would be taking a “new project management approach” to the efforts.
He named Dewey Loselle, a former Representative Town Meeting (RTM) member who previously worked with the Downtown 2020 Committee, to lead the new entity.
The 14-member committee includes three members who have been serving on the Downtown 2020 Committee as well as members representing the P&Z, RTM, Downtown Merchants Association, town departments, and the public.
