With a need to address traffic concerns and receive more information with respect to the inland and wetlands office's analysis of the project, the planning and zoning commission decided last month to postpone and continue a public hearing on The Village at Poquonock at its next scheduled meeting, which is Tues., Nov. 13.
At the planning and zoning's commission's October meeting, developers presented the plan for construction to the commission — a plan that met resistance from residents in the Poquonock section of town.
Chief among the concerns residents expressed were the welcoming of a large renter population to town (the proposal includes the construction of eight two-story apartment buildings) and possible changes to an historic and unique section of town.

According to the project's application, the developers, Poquonock Commons, LLC, have proposed the construction of 300 residential units on the 70-acre property that is now Brown's Driving Range.
Planned residential units include apartments, townhouses and single-family homes. The project also calls for the development of business space.
In addition to the eight apartment buildings, the proposal includes plans for 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 public hearing, which will include a presentation and rebuttal from developers, will be held at 7 p.m. Tues., Nov. 12 at town hall council chambers.
