Parking garage expansions are approved

A Planning and Zoning application requesting a net 500 new parking spaces in garages of the Wilton Corporate Park on Danbury Road in South Wilton won approval Oct. 10 before the Planning and Zoning Commission.

“I find no problems with it,” said Commissioner Rick Tomasetti on Sept. 25 during a continued hearing at the Cider Mill School cafeteria.

By consensus of the commissioners, they asked Town Planner Bob Nerney to prepare a resolution of approval on which they would take action at a future meeting in October. That came on Oct. 11, at the Clune Center, with conditions.

The property managers, David Marcus Partners, said the additional parking space is needed to accommodate more employees.

The garage at 40 Danbury Road now has 492 spaces, and will grow by 185 spaces, according to plans on file at the town’s planning and zoning office. The garage at 50 Danbury Road now has 1,089 spaces, and will grow by 326 spaces.

Those parking totals include some surface parking in lots at the complex.
