Although the Planning and Zoning Commission\u2019s public hearing on Wilton Heights, LLC\u2019s special permit application was continued to Monday, Dec. 10, members of the public were still invited to speak on the application at the commission\u2019s Nov. 26 meeting. Salem Road resident Rhoda Dix took the opportunity to express her thoughts on the proposal to redevelop properties at 300 Danbury Road and several on Whitewood Lane with mixed-use buildings consisting of retail space and residential units. Dix \u2014 a longtime Wilton resident with a \u201cvested interest in the town\u201d \u2014\u00a0said she is \u201call for new development in Wilton,\u201d but worries the proposed development at 300 Danbury Road will overshadow Wilton Center. \u201cWe do need development, but we need that kind of development in the village if we want to keep the village as is,\u201d she said. Dix said the proposed development \u201clooks nice,\u201d but she thinks it would be better in Wilton Center. \u201cIf you go through Wilton Center now, you see far too many vacancies \u2026 Why not develop something in one of the buildings already in town? \u201d said Dix, adding that mixed use properties in Wilton Center would be \u201ca great idea.\u201d When it comes to new development like Wilton Heights, LLC is proposing, Dix said, the town should think about the effects on the center of town. \u201cWhat are our visions when we have developments like this across the road?\u201d she said. \u201cI think it\u2019s beautiful; I\u2019m not against it, [but] what's going to happen to our real town center? Do we have a vision of moving Wilton Center across the road [to 300 Danbury Road]?\u201d Planning and Zoning Commission Chair Scott Lawrence said that\u2019s been something the commission has been discussing and debating, and it will be \u201ca discussion point\u201d later on in the Wilton Heights, LLC special permit application process. The continuation of the public hearing on Wilton Heights, LLC\u2019s application on Dec. 10 will take place in Room A of the town hall annex beginning at 7:15 p.m.
