WESTPORT, Conn. -- After the Westport Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously rejected a apartment-building development, its developer, Garden Homes Management is taking the matter to court -- specifically the state Superior Court, the Westport News reported.

The P&Z gave a variety of reasons for the rejections and the final hearing for Garden Homes' application, including environmental and safety concerns, as well as a citizen petition against the project, which over 600 had signed, according to the Westport News.
