Ridgefield moves forward on Schlumberger sales

The Ridgefield Board of Selectmen has voted to move forward with a lease for some of the town-owned Schlumberger land.  The lease for $3.4 million dollars in exchange for 12 acres is to an art collector, previously identified as the Chairman of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. 

 

The proposal still faces a town vote.  The art collector would repurpose some of the buildings on the land and house a private art collection. 

 

Another request for proposals would go out to buyers looking to develop 10 acres of land that voters previously rejected a $4 million dollars sale for.  Toll Brothers proposed building 30 luxury condos on the site. 

 

Five acres was previously sold to a developer for a hotel and office space.  That would leave the town with 18 acres, mostly for open space.  About 4.5 acres would be set aside for future town building needs.
