Noise, dust and fumes: Ansonia neighborhood group vies with construction business

A cadre of Westwood Road residents claim the noise, dust and fumes generated by one of the city’s largest taxpayers is making their lives unlivable. And residents of the city’s Westwood Road neighborhoods also say they believe that Burns Construction is violating city zoning laws by crushing rock on the company’s Woodlot site. The association has hired Kevin Curseaden, a Milford lawyer, in its fight against the business. Barry Knott, a Stratford lawyer who represents Burns, said he is aware of the complaint but said Burns is complying with the city’s zoning, noise and contamination regulations. His remark was backed up by the city’s corporation counsel, John P. Marini, who said the city is aware of the complaint but agreed with Knott. A public hearing on the complaint has been scheduled before the Board of Zoning Appeals during its 7 p.m. Monday meeting.
