The Ridgefield Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a 3rd public hearing on a “mixed use overlay zone” proposal. Affordable housing priced according to 60% of the state median income will not be part of the proposal. The idea was initially included to incentivize developers away from an 8-30g application. Under the state's affordable housing laws, a developer can bypass local zoning restrictions for height, housing density, or lot coverage if 30% of available units are designated as affordable housing. The public hearing is set for 7:30 tonight.
