Deadline passed for developer to file appeal in Newtown warehouse application

The deadline for Wharton Equity Partners, LLC to file an appeal of the Newtown  Planning & Zoning Commission denial of its application has passed.  The developer did not file an appeal with the town by July 1st on their application for a 76 bay door warehouse at 10 Hawleyville Road.  Wharton sought a Special Exception to build a 344,880 square foot warehouse, but the application was denied on a vote of 3 to 2.  Resident objections concerned traffic, air pollution, and noise pollution.  The commission’s split decision stemmed from those reservations, as well as an alternate member asking Wharton to perform a sound study on multiple occasions and the developer refused. An intervenor that opposed the warehouse has filed an application for a six-month moratorium on similar applications to give Newtown an opportunity to “develop restrictions and standards” on such developments.
