Despite a rash of opposition from neighbors, three affordable housing applications are set to continue through the Planning and Zoning process in March, each of them at different stages of completion.
The first and furthest along in the process is the site at , which now sits at 12 units, down from an originally proposed 16.
With Tuesday's special Planning and Zoning meeting cancelled, the application process is set to continue March 15 tentatively -- the months-long process has seen much debate over environmental issues, water problems and traffic concerns.
The second project is proposed for 28 Gilbert St. on the corner of New St., a plot that would encompass 12 units on a third of an acre -- according to section 8-30g of the Connecticut State Code, 30 percent of the units would meet affordable standards.
The applicant, DPA LLC., joined the P&Z commission last week for a public hearing that showed a number of concerned neighbors -- the hearing is scheduled to continue March 27.
A third project is proposed for 593 Main St., which would place 16 units on just over one acre of land. The applicant in this case is 593 Main Street Ridgefield LLC.
The public hearing for this project is set for March 6.
Although the town has suggested the possibility of seeking out a moratorium on affordable housing projects, more of these applications have come through recently than ever before, P&Z chair Rebecca Mucchetti said.
Whether they come to pass will be determined in the next few months.
