‘Seamlessly,’ Baron’s South Moves Forward

By James Lomuscio

In what was called a seamless transition from one administration to the other, the Baron’s South Committee met today with Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe and Second Selectman Avi Kaner, who both pledged their support to move the planned senior housing project forward.

Marpe and Kaner are currently negotiating a “memorandum of understanding” with the developer Johnathan Rose Companies for the construction of a 130-unit facility, plus 32 memory care units, on several acres of the 22.7-acre town-owned property called Baron’s South.

Kaner said that the understanding agreement should be completed within a week, then go to the Baron’s South Committee and Town Attorney Iran Bloom for approvals before being presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission for required (P&Z) permits. 

“The selectman’s office is very supportive, and we want to support that journey and move it forward,” said Marpe, adding that such a center, with 30 percent affordable units, would allow seniors to age in place.
