Hearing set for Wednesday on Rentschler Field development

The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Wednesday night on a plan to develop 300 acres of the former Rentschler airfield. Pratt & Whitney agreed to sell the parcel to Boston-based National Development in November 2021. The developers filed applications for a zone change to the Design Development District where the property lies on March 2. The submitted master plan for the site divides the area into five parcels. The developers said at the Feb. 8 Town Council meeting that the project would create about 2,000 permanent jobs and generate over $4 million in tax revenue to the town, as well as spurring new development and redevelopment.
