Developer returns with smaller hotel proposal for West Street in Southington

Jaymin Mehta of Canton, in association with GLNK LLC, has applied to develop a new hotel at 17 West St. The property is 47,676 square feet and has served as a parking area for many years, according to minutes from the Feb. 3 Conservation Commission meeting. The maximum lot coverage allowed in the area is 50 percent and the applicant is proposing a 7,500 square foot building, quite a bit less than what is allowed, the minutes said. Lou Perillo, the town’s economic development coordinator, said he is supportive of a hotel on the site. The Feb. 3 meeting minutes state that the applicant is proposing to disturb 8,000 square feet of wetlands, which is mostly pavement and scrub brush. This will allow for the construction of the building and its driveway.
