Residents living near the Madison Beach Hotel are so convinced that the Planning and Zoning’s creation of the West Wharf District will make it easier for the hotel to expand that they have filed a legal appeal of the town’s decision, the New Haven Register reports.
The appeal was filed Monday in Superior Court, New Haven. Currently, the hotel is in a residential zone, and it has to get variances from the Zoning Board of Appeals whenever it wants to undertake a project, the Register’s Sean Carlin reports.
According to the new district, the Planning and Zoning Commission would have jurisdiction over the hotel.
However, residents said they fear further expansion and that property values will nose dive. They also expressed traffic and noise concerns too.Read the New Haven Register’s full story here.
