Shelton P&Z rejects plan to add 28 more condos at River Road complex

Plans to nearly double a condominium development off River Road have been shot down by the Shelton Planning and Zoning Commission. Daybreak Ridge, LLC, is presently constructing 36 condominiums — dubbed Daybreak Ridge — at the site. The developers’ application for the zone change of the 12.39-acre parcel to a Planned Development District would have nearly doubled the project’s size. The developers’ representatives sought a PDD for the site, saying it was a transition location between commercial — specifically the restaurant on River Road — and residential. The commission, at its August meeting, was to simply vote to accept and set up a public hearing on the application. That action is considered a formality, but even that vote met reluctance. After the reading of the legal notice on the plan and a short discussion, Commissioner Elaine Matto made the motion to accept, but no other commissioners seconded it.
