There was a public hearing Tuesday night in Ridgefield to discuss a possible zone change for some of the Schlumberger property. 10 acres off Sunset Lane, which are currently zoned for business could become a multifamily development district.
The zone is described as being for up to six units per acre. But there can be eight per acre if some are sold as affordable housing.
The town purchased the Schlumberger property in 2011 for $7-million, with the thought that some of the land could be sold for development.
The Planning and Zoning Commission held the hearing as part of their meeting Tuesday.
