Serena & Lily to Open at Kemper-Gunn House

Though not exactly the Mom & Pop shop that the town had hoped to woo to the restored and relocated Kemper-Gunn house at 35 Elm St., town officials are nonetheless bullish about Serena & Lily, the national home furnishings, bedding and decor outlet opening there on Friday.

In fact, the town is so pleased that First Selectman Jim Marpe will be part of the ribbon cutting ceremony set for Friday at 9:30 a.m.

“We are very excited that Serena & Lily found a home in Westport,” said Marpe. “We welcome them and wish them much success.

“Serena and Lily’s presence in the downtown location, coupled with the unique circumstances surrounding the move and restoration of the Kemper-Gunn House, can be attributed to the dedication of many Westporters,” he added. “I want to extend my sincere thanks to all the people who helped make this happen.”

WestportNow.com Image
Lucy’s, a high-end women’s boutique, opens Thursday at 23 Jesup Road in the space formerly occupied by Lynne Scalo Design, according to owner Lisa Savone. A Westport resident, Savone said she is not new to the Westport fashion scene, having previously owned and operated Lucy’s around the corner at 48 Post Road East, next to Tiffany, from 2004 to 2013 when she closed the business to raise her family. The Post Road space is now occupied by Joie, a designer clothing store. Savone also owns Lucy’s in Ridgefield for the past 10 years. She said the name of the business originated with her childhood nickname which, she said, was also her mother’s and grandmother’s nickname. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

CT Unemployment Rate Rose Slightly in March

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Connecticut’s unemployment rate rose two-tenths of a percentage point in March, climbing to 5.7 percent, as job growth essentially remained flat, the state Department of Labor reported today.

The state has added 5,600 jobs since the start of 2016, but still has not fully recovered from The Great Recession. Through the most recent report, Connecticut has regained 91,400, or 76.7 percent, of the 119,100 jobs it lost during the last economic downturn.

“Although the rise in the unemployment rate this month was unexpected, there are some positive aspects to the move,” said Andy Condon, director of the Office of Research for the Labor Depatment. “The rise in unemployment occurred in a growing labor force, meaning it was driven by more people entering the labor market looking for work rather than a decrease in the number of employed. Job growth is occurring, but not fast enough to employ all of those recently entering the market.”

Six of the state’s 10 major industry super-sectors sdded jobs in March led by trade, transportation and utilities, which gained 1,300 positions. Gains also were recorded in: leisure and hospitality, government, professional and business, information, and education and health services.

Hiawatha Lane Project Not 8-30-g

By James Lomuscio

Developer Felix T. Charney, who wants to build 155 rental units on Hiawatha Lane off Exit 17 in Saugatuck, got support at Thursday night’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) pre-application hearing from an unexpected source—the Westport Housing Authority (WHA). 

WestportNow.com Image

It has also been learned that the development proposed this time around will not be an 8-30g project, a state affordable housing law initiative that allows a developer to skirt local zoning laws.

Carol Martin, WHA’s executive director, gave her nod to the Summit Saugatuck plan becuase it includes a separate development that will offer 70 affordable units.

Because it is a separate development, Planning and Zoning Director Steven Palmer pointed out that 8-30g, which allows a developer to override local zoning laws if a municipality does not have 10 percent of its housing stock deemed affordable, cannot be used with this application.

Oops, State Error Costs Taxpayers $12 Million

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

Kevin Sullivan, the state commissioner of revenue services, issued a public apology today for an agency error that caused about 120,000 taxpayers to overstate the value of a property tax credit, resulting in about $12 million in underpayments to the state.

The goof means lots of taxpayers can expect a letter telling them they’ll need to refund a portion of their refund.

“When we make a mistake, we own it and fix it immediately,” Sullivan said.

A statement about the apology went out at about 4:30 p.m., three hours after Rep. Vincent J. Candelora, R-North Branford, issued a press release publicizing the error.

CT Jobless Rate Rises; 2015 Growth Halved

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

Despite gaining 900 jobs, Connecticut’s unemployment rate rose slightly in January from 5.4 to 5.5 percent, the state Department of Labor reported today.

WestportNow.com Image
The 2015 jobs revision reduced the year’s total by almost 15,000 positions. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Ctmirror.org graphic

The Labor Department also significantly reduced its original job growth projections for 2015 by 14,700 positions. Original job growth of 26,900 was reduced to 12,200. That means Connecticut only has recovered 73 percent, or 86,700 of the jobs lost in the last recession and also hasn’t recovered all private-sector jobs lost.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s administration hailed it as a strong sign of economic growth late last year when the department declared that all private-sector jobs lost in the last recession had been recovered. But after applying adjustments, the department now says the private sector has regained 96,100 or 86 percent of the jobs it lost in the last recession.

The new jobless rate still is down from the 6.1 percent ratio recorded in January 2015.
