Halls Rd. Gas Station/Convenience Store Proposal Continued to Old Lyme Inland Wetlands May Meeting

OLD LYME — Tonight’s scheduled Old Lyme Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission (IWWC) meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. is going ahead as planned via Webex. The anticipated continuation of the Public Hearing related to the construction of a new convenience mart and gas station at the junction of 99 Halls Rd. and 25 Neck Rd. will not, however, now take place.

According to a letter submitted to the IWWC by Alter Pearson LLC  (attorneys for the applicant), Big Y Foods/Tony Coppola (the applicant) has requested a continuation of the hearing, “to complete an analysis of an adjoining, off-site, wetland area and revise plans accordingly.”

Following usual procedure, it is expected that the continuation will be granted.

It is now anticipated that the Public Hearing will be included in the IWWC’s next meeting on Tuesday, May 25, when the hearing will likely be closed at its conclusion and the Commission may then take a vote on the proposal at that time.

Alternatively, the commission may defer their vote until a later date.
