Windsor is on the cusp of significant change, what with construction of Great Pond Village just around the corner and plans to develop Windsor Center into a foot-traffic heavy attraction for daily rail riders and prospective residents, alike.
The trend of development and change is now extending from Windsor Center and Day Hill Road up Poquonock Avenue.
On file at the town planning and zoning office is a proposal for a significant development on what is now the driving range at Brown's Harvest.
Recently purchased, the driving range's new owners — Harold and Lois Schneider — have proposed developing 50 acres of the 70-acre property into a development "featuring high quality architectural and site design of all buildings and improvements," according to the application.
The developers, under the name Poqunock Commons, LLC, envision their project, which is being called "The Village at Poquonock," as one that "will enhance existing community and landscape features, add new open spaces, walkways, active and passive recreation areas, and provide and preserve scenic vistas and the natural resources of the town."
The proposal outlines the construction of 297 units, including apartments, town homes, single family residences and business space.
According to the application, the project will require the construction of 78 structures — eight two-story apartment buildings, six-unit townhouse buildings (each with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths) and a variety of single family homes constructed in 14 different styles.
The apartments are described in the application at 1,300 and 950 square-foot units.
