Westport Officials Outline Concerns at Norwalk Hearing
Alicia Mozian addresses a Norwalk hearing tonight. Contributed photoWestport Conservation Director Alicia Mozian told a Norwalk hearing tonight about Westport’s environmental concerns with the proposed 328-unit Norden Park development on the Westport-Norwalk border.
Following up on the Westport Conservation Commission’s 11-point letter submitted last month to Norwalk’s Conservation Commission, Mozian attended the meeting at the request of First Selectman Gordon Joseloff.
“The run off from this property will flow into Westport’s wetlands, the Saugatuck River and Long Island Sound and is already polluted,” she said. “We don’t want it to get worse.”
The Norden property, the site of former military radar testing located between I-95 and the Metro-North tracks, totals 41 acres, including 11 acres of wetlands, three of which are in Westport.
Town’s Technology Emphasized
Coming on the heels of the launch of the town’s redesigned Web site, Westport officials tonight outlined plans to improve the town’s technology.
The discussions came during a Board of Finance session to discuss the proposed 2006-07 budget.
The proposed information technology operating budget would increase by more than $230,000 if the budget proposal is approved.
First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said town officials have been under-investing in technology, and now his administration needs to catch up.
Driver Not Hurt in Accident
A Weston woman was unhurt tonight when her car went off Wilton Road at the intersection of King’s Highway North in Westport. Her vehicle went over a low wall and through a wrought iron fence after she said she veered too far to the right to avoid “oncoming blinding high-beam headlights.” Although shaken, she did not require medical assistance.
