Community Gardens Gains Approval

By Jennifer Connic

Community gardeners are one step closer to having a new home on the former Jaeger property.

The Westport Planning and Zoning Commission has approved a plan to place the gardens on the property adjacent to Long Lots Elementary School.

The plan features 30 plots on the west side of the property.

Planning and Zoning Director Laurence Bradley said the commission is requiring the gardens not be used between 8-9 a.m. and 3-4 p.m. to address some concerns from parents.
