Litchfield.bz (03-14-13)


 

A public hearing on Stop & Shop's plan to move to the Village Green plaza resumed before the Inland Wetlands Commission on Wednesday and will continue on April 10.

The commission is still receiving information from Stop & Shop's legal and engineering representatives and from an engineer representing the Protect Litchfield Action Network, a group of residents who oppose the plan.
 
Wednesday's hearing at the Litchfield firehouse saw a crowd of about 50 hear Stop & Shop representatives explain revisions to the storm water runoff and erosion aspects of the plan. PLAN's engineer responded by calling the revision's inadequate to protect adjacent property from polluted runoff.
 
Stop & Shop is seeking approval to demolish three buildings in Village Green and use the space to build a new store.
