"We would be bankrupt,"

Posted Sep 17, 2008 @ 11:04 PM


Town Council last night postponed a decision on whether to rezone a portion of Rte. 140, demanding more specific information about potential development.

"If they want us to pass that bylaw, give us information," said Councilor Robert Vallee.

Town planners proposed the idea to expand business opportunities, said Town Administrator Jeffrey D. Nutting.

Town Planner Beth Dahlstrom and Town Engineer William Yadisernia are hoping the zoning change will bolster development by allowing a wider variety of projects near the Knights of Columbus property, which is on the northerly side of Rte. 140, they have said.

The plan would switch a portion of West Central Street (Rte. 140) from Business/Single Family III to Commercial II.

The Knights of Columbus is selling its property, town planners want to increase the redevelopment potential of the lots in that area, and the Knights property is in need of substantial redevelopment, Yadisernia has said.
