Here's what happened at Tuesday night's Planning and Zoning meeting:
- Zoning Enforcement Officer Paul Dinice told the committee about a story from a woman who lives at 158 Ohman Avenue. He says the woman returned from a hospital stay to discover the property owner had "dismantled her kitchen," in Dinice's words, installing an interior wall and an outside storm door, complete with lock.
Dinice said he toured the home with the building inspector and confirmed the woman's reports. "It was obvious the home is being transformed into a two-family house," he said.
"The commission's going to take a look at this after I confer with the town attorney about how to proceed," Dinice told Patch, adding that several options are on the table for dealing with the situation.
- The construction company handling Milford-based Million Snacks's new location at the Firelite Shopping Center on Old Tavern Road hit delays in their application process.
The board is considering a proposal from Million Snacks to convert the 1,000 feet of space from retail space to restaurant use. Scott Herman of All-American Construction, the company handling the planned conversion, was present at the meeting. Commission chair Walter Clark told Herman the plan did not address several concerns, including the lack of a detailed floor plan, and recommended the board not sign off on the application.
"We'll see you in a couple weeks and get this ironed out," Clark told Herman.
