Zoners to deal with Route 7 proposals

Yet another potential spat about housing at Straits Rock in New Milford is before the Zoning Commission.
His proposed 33-unit housing development, Riverwalk, would be built along the Housatonic River.
The parcel sits at the intersection of Squash Hollow Road and Kent Road (Route 7), running south from Squash Hollow.
The zone change proposal -- from active adult community to an R-80 single-family housing zone -- will go to a zoning public hearing Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7 p.m.
The proposal is called Eagle Holdings LLC.
The site was approved for active adult community some six years ago under the name Fox Hollow. If the zone change were to be approved, Mr. Walters would call the property Fox Hollow subdivision.
He has offered 25 acres of the parcel to the town for open space. Mr. Walters' offer will go before a special town meeting at a time to be determined by Mayor Pat Murphy.
