The Planning and Zoning Commission heard an application Oct. 26 for the subdivision of 434 Hurlbutt Street, a residential address, into two lots, with a third lot to be donated to the town as open space. The public hearing was kept open, as the project, which involves the installation of two new septic systems, has not yet been approved by the Wilton Health Department. Kevin O\u2019Brien, founder and broker of O\u2019Brien Premier Properties LLC, explained to the commission that his client, James Kleiber, the applicant and owner of the property, does not wish to develop the parcels himself; rather, he intends to sell them if possible. The proposed property cuts would create a two-acre building lot alongside the two-acre main residential address, as well as a parcel of 2.5 acres that Kleiber plans to donate to the town, so that it may be annexed to the adjacent 7.2 acres of open space south of 434 Hurlbutt Street. Town Planner Bob Nerney questioned O\u2019Brien as to whether he had gone before the Board of Selectmen to make the offer. \u201cIt does require that it be acceptable to the Board of Selectmen,\u201d Nerney said. O\u2019Brien replied that he had not, as of yet, but was confident his client\u2019s donation would be accepted, saying, \u201cI don\u2019t think I\u2019d have a hard time giving 2.5 acres away. I can\u2019t imagine the town wouldn\u2019t want it, because it\u2019s not a field to mow, or something that they\u2019re going to have to spend money on.\u201d There was some discussion during the hearing regarding use conformity for the main lot where \u00a0a house and two cottages stand. O\u2019Brien acknowledged that the use of 434 Hurlbutt, at present, does not conform to Wilton\u2019s zoning regulations, because each aforementioned building is occupied by tenants. The regulations stipulate that only two residences be allowed on a single property. Since all three buildings fall within the boundary lines proposed to define the main lot, one cottage would be \u201cdecommissioned\u201d as a residence, according to O\u2019Brien. To do that, \u201cWe\u2019re going to remove any connection to septic,\u201d he said, arguing that such a severance would satisfy the zoning laws. \u201cIt\u2019s the use that\u2019s not conforming, not the property itself,\u201d O\u2019Brien argued.The next public hearing for Kleiber\u2019s application is scheduled for Nov. 9.
