The Ridgefield Planning & Zoning Commission has urged its counterpart in Danbury to pursue deed restrictions on a large, multi-family development proposed for a 13.4-acre tract near the town line.
The zoning application in Danbury requires a zone change from the current IL-40 industrial zone to an RMF-6 residential zone. According to regional agreements, whenever a zoning change is proposed near a town border, the matter is referred to land-use agencies in the neighboring town for comment.
In this case, the applicant, First-Cut Holdings LLC, is seeking approval for a 70-unit development at the northwest corner of Saw Mill Road and Turner Road in Danbury.
According to the referral, up to 97 units might be allowable, although a portion of the property is regulated wetlands.
The Ridgefield commission responded on Tuesday by asking Danbury to seek deed restrictions so the development cannot exceed the proposed 70 units.
