WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 41 Richmondville Ave. Image
An application for a permit to demolish the office annex structure of the historic mill at 41 Richmondville Ave.  is in process. The office annex, (see reddish structure in photo foreground) built in the 1950s, has 13,944 square feet and is a component of the former mill, which changed ownership in November, 2019 for $3.8 million. Because the annex was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. As announced in August, the mill is being converted into 32 one- to three-bedroom, luxury condominium units. The mill, most recently operated as an office complex, was built in the 1814 and has 54,310 square feet. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for

Halloween Window Painting Contest Seeks Artists

The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce (WWCC) is seeking artists and businesses to take part in the eighth annual Halloween Window Painting Contest set for Saturday, Oct. 24, it was announced. Image

According to Matthew Mandell, WWCC executive director, the event in which children paint merchants’ windows for prizes is expected to to be the largest since the contest’s inception.

The contest is open to elementary, middle school and high school students and has three competition categories: most scary, best Halloween themed and most original.

Nine painters or teams of painters will win $25 gift certificates to Donut Crazy and have photos of them and their artwork posted on social media and local press, the announcement said.

Ruth Mannes, executive director of MoCA Westport, and Anne Greenberg, MoCA’s director of education, are the contest’s judges. Mandell credited Betsy Pollak and Our Town Crier for the contest’s creation and production.

“Families are really looking to do something for Halloween this year, and we’ve got a fun and safe event for them,” Mandell said. “COVID has disrupted so many things in our lives, but this contest, always a hit, will especially be embraced by everyone from resident to business person.”

Mandell said the Chamber is seeking painters and merchants to offer their windows for painting. For further information visit

Superintendent: COVID-19 Case at Long Lots

Superintendent Thomas Scarce sent the following email to parents tonight:

“Early this evening Dr. Debra Dunn, Principal of Long Lots Elementary School, learned of a positive COVID-19 test in the school.

“The affected individual will be excluded from the school environment and has been instructed to quarantine at home. 

“Upon learning of the positive COVID-19 case, the administration began immediate contact tracing.

Those determined to be ‘close contacts,’ including some staff members, and one fourth grade class of students, have been notified. 

“These individuals spent a significant amount of time in the presence of the positive case, and as a result, were informed that they will be excluded from the school environment and recommended to quarantine for 14 days and may return to school on Oct. 30. 

“They were also asked to reach out to their health care provider should they develop any symptoms consistent with COVID-19. To be clear, siblings and other family members of these children and staff do not need to quarantine.

“As I have shared in prior communications of a similar nature, working closely with the Westport/Weston Health District and our medical advisor, it has been confirmed that the staff and students have implemented our mitigating measures by maintaining distance to the maximum extent possible, and by wearing masks.”
