Shelton developer says downtown plan lacks sufficient parking

Angelo Melisi, Jr., the developer of Bridge Street Commons I and II in the heart of downtown, is calling on the Planning and Zoning Commission to deny Guedes’s plans, as presently submitted, to construct a four-story building with 30 apartments and 34 parking spaces on land presently used for city parking. Melisi said he supports the development of more apartments and commercial space downtown, but wrote “I do object to the construction of more apartments and more commercial space without adequate parking.” Guedes — who along with his partner Biagio Barone has an agreement in place to purchase the site from the city — is seeking approval from the commission to have the property designated a Planned Development District (PDD). Guedes said his development will not have an adverse impact on parking downtown.
