I think we are at this point because the objective was to confuse the voters to what was coming down the Pike. Who knew a 100% apartment building, who know no designation of how much commercxial, who realized they could also build two new Garages up to three stories high. The P&Z voted to omit any details in the regulations so now its up to the BOS. There really is no process for Publlic input because its ignored completely.
Your correct. In addition the P&Z does not take the time to digest public comment in the case of housing. last week they voted yes almost immediatley after public comment was finsihed to a significantly changed amendment from what the voters approved.
As I understand it, they would be allowed to have a single building that is completely residential, as long as they also do commercial somewhere else. Or they could put 160 apartments in a building and a single little office and that office would be “commercial” and qualify. Definitely attend. We are only at this point due to a misleading question on the November ballot.
My comments are apolitical. My point is that CT is not run well, regardless of the name of the party in office. It is underperforming almost all other states in the union with respect to the economy. People are not leaving just to retire. They're leaving to find jobs and that is a major concern for the future of the state.
