Meeting Canceled for Storage and Business Units on Shore Road in Old Lyme

OLD LYME — CN&S Realty of Old Lyme has withdrawn its application for the construction of three storage and service contractor buildings at 250 Shore Road (Rte. 156), canceling tonight’s special meeting of the Zoning Commission at 6 p.m. 

A spokesperson from town hall said the applicant withdrew because there was not enough time to comply with a number of conditions set forth by the town engineer and the state Department of Transportation within the 65-day application period. 

A letter from the Department of Transportation dated August 5 denied the applicant’s request to work within the state right-of-way, citing seven items including proof of town approval prior to the issuance of an encroachment permit. Other issues included drainage, stormwater, leaching system, landscaping, signage and the geometry of the driveway. 

The list of conditions from Tom Metcalf, town engineer, was not available at the time of publication.

The applicant can submit a new application once the list of requirements is completed.
