Appeal filed over Loaves & Fishes application rejection

An appeal has been filed by Loaves & Fishes Hospitality House to overturn a Zoning Commission denial.  The non-profit is looking to build a new facility on Bridge Street in New Milford, but the application has been denied.  Concerns with the Bridge Street site ranged from parking to traffic.

 

The town previously asked Loaves & Fishes to move out of their current site at the Richmond Center so the space could be used for municipal services. 

 

Attorney Neil Marcus filed the appeal on Monday.  Marcus says the seller is willing to give the non-profit a contract that will allow for the acquisition and construction.  He says there are a lot of opportunities for the two sides to reach a settlement, noting that minor changes to the plan could address many of the raised issues.

 

Loaves & Fishes has been in operation for more than 30 years.  They help the less fortunate and the homeless have access to a good meal.

 

The house at 25 Bridge Street would be torn down and a new building constructed.  The non-profit planned to call the facility the Danny Straub Community Outreach Center, named for the late husband of the woman selling the land where their business was located.
