WESTPORT, Conn. — Planning and Zoning Commission members were questioning a pre-application proposal for two abutting housing complexes in Westport at Thursday's meeting, according to a story in Westport News.

One complex contains 85 market-rate units, and the other has 70 units designated as “affordable," said Westport News.

Summit Development wants permission to build the apartments at the end of the Hiawatha Lane Extension, on the Westport/Norwalk border. Summit intends to build the project in two stages: phase one would start in early 2017 with 85 market-rate units, and phase two would begin in the summer of 2018 with 70 "affordable" units as defined under the state’s affordable housing statute, Westport News said.

For the project to move forward, a sewer line 1,600 feet long would have to be installed, extending from Davenport Lane to Hiawatha Lane, said Westport News.
