Zoning Commission Meets Tonight to Continue Public Hearings on Affordable Housing Proposal

The Old Lyme Zoning Commission will convene this evening for its regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School (LOLMS) auditorium to continue the Public Hearings related to the two Affordable Housing applications submitted by HOPE Partnership for 18-1 Neck Road (formerly 16 Neck Road) for a total of 37 dwelling units.  The property, which will be known as River Oak Commons I and II, falls under Connecticut General Statutes 8-30g and is currently owned by Graybill Properties, LLC.

The agenda for the meeting states, “Public Hearing is recommended to be closed tonight [Monday, June 11] as the Application was received by the Zoning Commission on 4/9/2018 and must be decided upon within 65 days of ~receipt (6/12/2018)]”

When these Public Hearings were opened at a Zoning Commission Special Meeting last Tuesday, more than 500 people showed up for the meeting, which had to be ended before public comment had finished due to janitorial time constraints at LOLMS.

Editor’s Note: We will seek to clarify the latest date by which a decision can be made by Zoning on the application and publish that information as soon as it is available.

    Perhaps time would not be so critical if the Applicant had given the Zoning Commission their complete application prior to the afternoon of the hearing last week. Then they may have had actual letters from the State regarding the traffic, The Health district regarding septic and the CT Water Company. These are the only issues to be judged according to their, no… the Town’s, Lawyer, who is violating our Old Lyme Code of Ethics by even addressing the Board.
