A Public hearing will be held Wednesday in Ridgefield about a new proposal for part of the Schlumberger site. The 10 acres is zoned for residential housing. The hearing Wednesday will be about a proposed $4-million purchase by Toll Brothers. The company was originally interested in the land for 30 age-restricted condos. Town officials decided to go with a different developer at the same price tag, but the deal fell through.
Wednesday's public hearing is set for 7:30pm at Town Hall. After a Town Meeting next month, the sale could be a question on the budget ballot.
There is a Thursday afternoon hearing planned in Ridgefield by the Connecticut Siting Council. Residents will have the chance to weigh in on the cell tower that's proposed for land off Ledges Road. Danbury-based Homeland Towers LLC and A-T-and-T would bear the cost of construction and equipment for the 150-foot tower.
The hearing begins at 3pm and continues at 7pm in the Town Hall lower level conference room.
