Eight-lot subdivision planned

The Wilton Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Monday, July 25, on one of the larger residential subdivisions to be considered in town in years.

The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m., in the Town Hall annex, 238 Danbury Road, to consider an eight-lot subdivision at Cannon Road, in a Residential R-2A zone.

The property consists of 55.2 acres and is owned by LTWJ LLC.

“Subdivisions are usually two, three, four lots driven by the size of the property,” Town Planner Bob Nerney told The Bulletin.

Copies of the pertinent plans and documents are on file at the office of Planning and Zoning, in the Town Hall annex.

It is not as detailed as containing architectural renderings.

“This is really just the division of the land, and the proposed grading, the utility location, the sight line distances along public roads,” said Nerney, who said the subdivision would be serviced by two common driveways.

The next step for the proposal would be for the Wilton Inland Wetlands Commission to hold a public hearing July 28 at 7:30 p.m.

That is not the only project up for review by the Inland Wetlands Commission. It will also consider a six-lot reconfiguration of property owned by the Brubeck Trust, the family of the late jazz pianist Dave Brubeck. The addresses are 221 Millstone Road and 67, 69, 73, 85 and 87 Hickory Hill Road.

“It looks at boundaries, but doesn’t create more lots,” Nerney said of the Brubeck property.  ‘It’s a reshifting, a relocation of lot lines.”

Members of both the Inland Wetlands Commission and Conservation commission have planned a site walk of the property on July 26. The Bulletin could not reach attorney Casey Healy, who is representing the trust, for comment on what might be planned for the property.
