Shelton zoning board OKs 100-apartment development on Petremont Lane, double the original ask

A 47-apartment development on Petremont Lane will more than double its size. The Planning and Zoning Commission, at its meeting Tuesday, approved Good Guys Development’s proposed modification to Petremont Lane and brings the apartment total to 100. Tuesday’s vote was 5-1 in favor of the project, with commissioner Jimmy Tickey opposed. He voiced concerns about the potential for the negative traffic effects of the project — dubbed Clock Tower at Petremont Lane. Traffic engineer Kermit Hua of KWH Enterprise, reported the traffic effect from the project would be “limited.” Petremont Lane is just off River Road. The property abuts a nonresidential area and a residential area, and, according to the application, the purpose of the planned development district is “to allow the construction of an apartment building to accomplish a transition between single-family use and an established nonresidential area.”
