||The Beacon Point Marina has come up with a very ambitious
plan to add 300 slips, restaurants, and condos along the Housatonic.
As usual, developers always try to get the most bang for the buck,
and this oversized development is no exception. If done right, with
subtle impact to the river, it has the potential of being the ideal
place to live. Just make it affordable for Shelton residents, not like
their Greenwich sister, whom most people find they can't afford to
dock their boat there.
At the regular
meeting of the Planning and Zoning Meeting, the development to the
end of Pautuckett Ave was denied! YEAH!!!!
was that it would take too much fill and not enough clearance to
put in the road, according to the city engineer. God bless him.
It will now go before the Alderman, because the owners will say
"Hey, I can't build here, so give my land a price reduction!"
want money from the city. Go figure..I hope our taxes don't go up.

||There was quite a stir at the Zoning Board
of Appeals meeting, when one of the neighbors presented a petition
including 90 signatures against developing the land on Constitution
Blv. S. near the gas line.
Just say NO to this one!!!!!
This is right next to the gas line.

315 Main Street, Derby, CT for a certificate of approval for an existing

||Inland Wetlands Meeting about 7 houses at the end of Pautuckett Ave.
Please attend this important meeting. This is the headwaters of Ivy
Brook of which we need to preserve.
||Map of Trails This
is the area probably referred to as Coram in the 16 and 1700's. It's
a valley between Long
Hill and Corum Hill, roughly about 200 acres .I think this area on
the map would make a nice nature preserve. Too bad you'd have to cross
Constitution. But, so be it. I am still researching the name Coram
Gardens. Even maps from the 1920's refer to the area around Coram Hill
as Coram Gardens. Laurel Heights is the area where the hospital was,
currently Pitney Bowes. This site will be updated next weekend.
