One-year moratorium on warehouse applications sought by South Windsor resident

A South Windsor resident filed an application with the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission on Jan. 11 asking for a one-year moratorium on any warehouse or distribution center proposals. Kathryn Kerrigan of Main Street said she filed the application because the town needs time to update its zoning regulations and Plan of Conservation and Development to properly accommodate such proposals.
Kerrigan said she anticipates the application will have a public hearing in the middle of March, based on conversations with members of the Planning Department, but a date has not been confirmed.
Amazon, Aldi’s, Coca-Cola and Home Depot occupy existing distribution centers in town in the area of Sullivan Avenue and Route 5. Kerrigan said many of the developers who propose warehouses and distribution centers come from outside of town.
