Weston residents file suit against town's plan for dog park

More than a dozen Weston residents have teamed up to file a lawsuit against the town's plan for a dog park.  The lawsuit, filed in Stamford Superior Court by 14 residents, argues that the Weston Conservation Commission should not have approved modified plans.  A lawsuit was previously filed on the 2018 approval, but the Superior Court sided with the town.  The new lawsuit makes three arguments. One is that the map for the proposed site didn’t show wetlands or topography, violating the Connecticut State Agencies Code of Ethics.  The lawsuit also argues Town Counsel Ira Bloom had conflicting roles as he challenged the residents’ arguments of the new application and then became the commission’s legal advisor.  They also say the Commission's chairwoman should have recused herself, but didn't--creating a conflict of interest.  Sarah Schlechter responded that given the passage of time between her email to the Board of Selectmen in support of the dog park in 2017 to now, she did not believe it was necessary.
