The Westport Day School, at 3 Sylvan Road South in Westport, is attempting to relocate to Wilton.
The school is applying for a special permit to allow a school for special needs students to operate out of a portion of the first floor of the existing office building at 372 Danbury Road.
The Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing is scheduled for Monday, June 22.
The proposed school would occupy approximately 10,000 square feet and would be staffed by 15 faculty members serving a maximum of 50 students.
Because there would be no construction, the applicant holds that the addition of the school will have no impact on traffic, town services, or sensitive environmental features.
The Wilton Plan of Conservation and Development states that “private schools, located in Wilton and elsewhere, play a vital role in educating children, at little if any cost to the Town.” Schools, public or private, are a special permitted use in the General Business Zoning District in which the desired premises fall.
