Westporters are now faced with a third proposed housing development; this one on the same location as the White Barn Preserve.

Preservationists are up in arms over a proposal by Fieber Group to build what it’s calling “conservation development”.  The plans would reportedly build 21 homes on a fifteen-acre property that borders Norwalk and Westport.  Locals say construction would damage wetlands, wildlife resources and contaminate area drinking water. 

A tree inventory is underway at Longshore Park, assessing the types of trees in that area and their condition.  Tree Warden Bruce Lindsay says the program’s need became evident as the park grew to become a popular recreational spot.  The inventory is expected to take two weeks and will be completed by Davey Resource Group.

Back at Town Hall, the school board is getting busy on a budget for the coming year.  Superintendent Elliot Landon proposed a roughly four percent increase for this year’s budget; the total being $113,294,493.  Trained security and employee health insurance are among the reasons for that increase.  The Board of Education is continuing to examine the final budget.

And this week also saw what could be on the way for the future downtown with the release of the draft master plan.   Final plans could be available by spring.  In the meantime, the Planning and zoning is schedule to review the draft during its next work session on Jan 15.  There will also be an open house at Town Hall for the public on Jan 28.
