Danbury Planning Commission to continue hearings tonight

A public hearing is continuing tonight before the Danbury Planning Commission.  An applicant is looking for approval of site plans and exceptions to build a self service storage facility at 95 Mill Plain Road, at the corner with Aunt Hack Road.  Diamond Point Development says a requested crosswalk and new apron on opposite side of Aunt Hack  has been added to the plans.  Any curbing added to Mill Plain will match the state curbing.  Updated documents say no storm water is being diverted.  Groundwater infiltration and storm water quality will be improved from existing conditions due to the pervious subsurface soils in the front of the site and the stormwater management design. 


The Commission is set to wrap up discussions and possibly vote on an application from a daycare center for an expansion project on White Street.  Twinkle Little Star Daycare is seeking to take over the rest of the space in the building they've been operating in for the last several years.  By occupying the vacant space, 180 children would be able to attend programs at the facility. There are no changes proposed to the footprint of the building. The existing free standing storage garages and containers, which were previously deemed non-conforming by the Zoning Enforcement Officer, will remain.


An auto dealer could gain Planning Commission approvals at their meeting tonight. Curry Automotive has an application for site plan approval at 1 & 15 Miry Brook Road.  They are seeking approval for a two story building for auto sales and repairs at the corner of Sugar Hollow Road.  The applicant has submitted a Traffic Impact Analysis.  The proposal would generate more than 500 vehicle trips per day.  The property is located within the Airport Approach Zone District and the applicant has received a final determination from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration for the building and pole lights.  The Danbury Airport Administrator agrees with the FAA final determination with a notation that the obstruction lighting adhere to the FAA determination.  Tonight's virtual Danbury Planning Commission meeting is at 7:30pm.
