2 Stamford Reps. wanted to stop all BLT projects temporarily. The city law department had an answer for that

Public Safety Committee Chair Jeff Stella, D-9, and board President Jeff Curtis, D-14, at a Board of Representatives meeting Wednesday floated the possibility of suspending all projects spearheaded by dominant Stamford developer Building and Land Technology until engineers complete their investigation into the partial collapse at one of its high rises. Yet, despite any concerns city Representatives may have moving forward, their options are slim, according to Stamford’s chief lawyer. The board cannot outright ban a business from legally operating and putting in place a moratorium for a single developer could trigger “emergency” legal action by that developer to challenge the city’s actions, Dalena said. City representatives have flirted before with a building moratorium.
