Zoning Amendment Hearing Postponed

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The Westport Planning and Zoning Commission will be considering a zoning amendment that will allow residents not to count wetlands when determining lot size, but it won’t take up the application until possibly January.

The legal notice for Thursday’s hearing and a press release said the commission will take up the application, but P&Z Director Laurence Bradley said today the matter will be opened and continued.

It remains unclear when the application will be taken up, he said, but it could be in January.

Right now, when calculating lots that do not conform to the zoning regulations, he said, wetlands and slopes are included.
