Senior housing project's wetlands request is tabled
Last week, engineers for the developer sought the commission’s approval for a prime wetlands re-delineation for the 25-plus acre property as well as permission to fill just under 3,000 square feet of wetlands for a road crossing.
Town Planning Director Ross Moldoff said he had no issue with the Conservation Commission taking action on either the re-delineation or the road crossing, although he said he would like to see more details about mitigation for some minor wetland buffer zone impacts proposed by the developer.
Commission member Thomas Campbell said he would not support any motion to approve the re-delineation without seeing the detailed plans.
The proposed Stone Bridge Estates Active Adult Community is in one of the town’s senior overlay districts, which means it would be allowed by zoning ordinance.
Under the guidelines of the senior overlay district, however, the town would allow two houses per acre.
Under the senior housing guidelines, the individual homes would be owned by people over the age of 55.
