Newtown Planning and Zoning Commission rejects application for warehouse

The Newtown Planning and Zoning Commission has rejected an application for a warehouse on Hawleyville Road.  The controversial proposal from Wharton Equities LLC drew a series of protests from residents concerned about noise, traffic and environmental impacts.  The 3 to 2 vote Thursday means a nearly 345,000 square foot warehouse with 55 trucking docks will not be built on 105 acres off Exit 9.  Commission members voting in opposition said they didn't believe the traffic numbers provided by the applicant were accurate, that they were based on an assumption the building wouldn't be used to full capacity and that it wasn't a sound study.
