WESTPORT, Conn. – In case you weren't able to check in with The Westport Daily Voice every day this past week, here’s a look back at some of the week’s top stories:
? After weeks of discussion and hearing parents’ feedback, the Westport Board of Education approved a play for five full days of kindergarten to begin this fall . Many parents spoke against changing the program during Monday night’s hearing in a last-minute after to change the board’s mind.
? Updated plans for the Bedford Square project—the proposed redevelopment of the Westport Weston Family Y downtown facility into a mixed-used complex— were unveiled Thursday and submitted to the Planning and Zoning Department . The Planning and Zoning Commission is expected to hold a public hearing on the plans by June.
? Westport Police Officer Robert Myer helped deliver a healthy baby inside a car on the Sherwood Island Connector on Friday morning, shortly after police received a call that the mother had gone into labor.
? It was announced at Monday’s Board of Finance meeting that construction on the new Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts might break ground next month. Construction on the project was supposed to start last September but was delayed due to fundraising issues.
? Pop-up cafes will once again appear in downtown Westport this year after the Board of Selectmen approved applications from Acqua Ristorante and La Villa Trattoria to once again install these curb-side street cafes outside their restaurants. Both eateries introduced pop up cafes in Westport last year.
