The Newtown Inland Wetlands Commission has approved a protection permit for a condo complex proposal in Sandy Hook. Three public hearings were held on the proposal for Washington Avenue. According to the Commission's minutes, six buildings with 74 condo units would be constructed by applicant Michael Burton.
The Inland Wetlands Commission kept the hearing open last week to review revised maps of the nearly 12 acre site. More approvals are still needed from various Newtown agencies. The project known as The River Walk at Sandy Hook Village gained approval from the Planning and Zoning Commission earlier this year.
A previous proposal was for fewer units, which is why the various Commissions and Departments are reviewing the proposal.
