NORWALK, Conn. – Here are some items of interest that were seen or heard recently in Norwalk:
Developers behind a huge South Norwalk construction project are approaching the Zoning Commission with modifications that include adding workforce housing back onto the site.
While Spinnaker Real Estate Partners obtained permission just over a year ago to move seven of the 11 affordable (workforce) housing units planned for 20 North Water St. offsite, the agenda for Thursday’s Plan Review Committee meeting says the company would like to add two units back to the property itself.
Spinnaker also is requesting permission to increase the amount of restaurant space, and replace 6,000 square feet of retail with 6,000 square feet of office space. It would also like to revise the parking layout to add four parking spaces.
Norwalk Senior Planner Dorothy Wilson did not return a Friday afternoon email asking for information. A phone call to Spinnaker CEO Clay Fowler went unreturned.
The development is now being marketed as SoNo Ironworks.
Bill due for Dem battle
Monday’s Board of Estimate and Taxation has one item on the agenda: a transfer of $45,000 from contingency to the registrar’s office to cover costs associated with September’s Democratic mayoral primary.
A memo from Budget Director Bob Barron to the BET said the $45,000 will also cover costs for the mandatory Third Taxing District recount in November.
Nothing happened, folks
The case of former Assistant Town Clerk Debbie Troy, who has been charged with larceny first degree after money was reported to be missing from the town clerk’s office, did not appear in Stamford court Thursday. Her lawyer, Eugene Zingaro, in a one- or two-sentence exchange with the Judge Richard Comerford, agreed that the case would be continued to Jan. 21. That will be the fourth time the case has been on the docket, according to the state judicial website.
Troy is also charged with illegal alteration of records, forgery second degree and tampering with physical evidence. The clerk’s office had no information on those charges Thursday. Zingaro declined to comment.
