An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 15 Roosevelt Road, in the Compo Beach area, is in process. Built in 1925, the 2-1/4 story conventional has 2,479-square feet and is situated on a .22-acre property. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Letter: ‘Pained’ by Missing Owl

To the Editor:

It pained me greatly today when I visited my husband’s grave in Willowbrook Cemetery to find his little cement owl, who sat on his tombstone, had been taken. How and why anyone would do such a thing s beyond me. It was not expensive, just a little “friend” to watch over him.

I am heartbroken at the loss. If whoever took it reads this and would like to put him back where he belongs, I would be very appreciative. 

What does this say about our society that nothing is sacred anymore.

Amendment Would Allow Healthcare in Corporate Parks

A zoning amendment to allow healthcare professional, medical and dental offices within the Corporate Park District (CPD) is scheduled to be heard by Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m.

Planning and Zoning Director Mary Young said today that if adopted, the amendment will expand the list of uses permitted within the CPD.

According to Young, land use consultant Melvin Barr discussed the proposal during a pre-application hearing in July.

“Members of the commission were receptive to the proposal that will result in providing commercial property owners with more options to fill vacancies in their building, and simultaneously provide Westport residents with greater access to healthcare providers,” Young said.
