The Southbury Zoning Commission has approved construction of three outdoor patios for restaurants. Additional lighting for nighttime use was also approved. The Newstimes reports Chip’s Family Restaurant will use one and Lucas Local Oyster Bar will another. The third was approved with no tenant attached. It's adjacent to a proposed retail location, but could be used if a restaurant moves in the space instead. Prior to the pandemic, the plan was to upgrade the sewage septic system at Southbury Green, but it was then amended to include the three outdoor spaces.
