Norwich residents get chance to comment on proposed second business park

As permitting gets underway for a proposed $24 million, 384-acre second business park in Occum, neighbors are rallying opposition to the plan many say would ruin Norwich’s quiet corner. The first chance for public comment will be at a neighborhood meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Norwich Worship Center, 165 Lawler Lane. NCDC has an option to purchase the 17 properties for $3.55 million from M&A Holdings LLC and Byron Brook Country Club LLC. NCDC’s option expires Dec. 31. Meanwhile, NCDC and real estate consultant Henry Resnikoff have pushed forward with design and permitting. The City Council-zoning board approved zoning regulations for a Business Master Plan District in April 2021.
