Hearing opened for building, concrete materials storage yard in Danbury

A building and concrete materials storage yard is being considered for a site in Danbury near the potential home of the proposed Danbury Career Academy.  The Planning Commission held a public hearing this week on an application by Hat City Concrete on Ye Olde Road, off Kenosia Avenue.  The two City Councilman who represent that ward, and a nearby resident, spoke out in opposition to the plans for a 17-thousand square foot building on a 1-and-a-half acre site.  The property is zoned for light industrial use, but the applicant needs to be approved for a special permit to store construction and building materials.  The proposal was made in 2019, but withdrawn after opposition and the applicant says not much has changed in this new plan.  The Planning Commission will continue the hearing in November.
