The Ridgefield Planning and Zoning Commission made changes to the town's accessory apartment regulations. They removed a minimum half-acre requirement for properties served by the town sewer line.
Detached accessory apartments do not need to mimic the exterior style of the main house, according to other updates to the regulation.
The Commission also rejected a request from the Boys and Girls Club for a zoning change extending the central business district into a residential neighborhood. The organization wants to expand on its Governor Street property, but has not yet submitted plans to do so, and say there are more approvals needed in a residential zone.
