Public can comment on proposed 26-home Perry Hill development

The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing on a proposal for a 26-lot housing development at 88-94 Perry Hill Road, near Walnut Avenue, on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The yellow line indicates where a 26-home development as well as two existing homes would be located, with Perry Hill Road on the right and Walnut Avenue on the top.

Developer Ben Perry’s S&G of Shelton has submitted the proposal for Perry Hill Estates on 13.5 acres. A public hearing is an opportunity for neighbors and others to comment on an application.

The property now is zoned Residence-1 (one-acre minimum) and Residence-2 (half-acre minimum), which would allow for fewer homes than in the development proposal. The applicant is seeking to create a Planned Development District.

The proposed Perry Hill Estates subdivision would include 26 new homes on new roads, with access from Perry Hill Road (on the right) as well as perhaps Walnut Avenue (on the top left side). Common areas to protect three wetland locations at the site would be overseen by a homeowners’ association. In this map, the new homes are in brown, the new roads are in gray, the wetlands are in green, and the existing watercourse is in blue (the two ponds in blue would be built as part of the project to detain water).

There would be two- and three-bedroom homes from about 2,100 square feet to 2,300 square feet in size. Access would be from a road off Perry Hill Road. A series of roads to be privately maintained would be built.

An association (common interest community) would be formed to create rules and oversee common areas, including the roads and detention ponds to handle water runoff.

 

Has Inland Wetlands approval

The Inlands Wetlands Commission has approved the plan. Three wetland areas totaling about 1.5 acres, including a watercourse, are located on the property.

The city engineer had opposed the project during the wetlands process, mostly because of drainage concerns.
