Updating a story that began in 2006 when Garden Homes Management Corp. initially proposed a 124 site manufactured housing community in Oxford, Conn. that has been fraught with numerous hearings, court rulings, wetlands studies, appeals and professional reviews that we last covered Nov. 29, 2012, Garden Homes has a new proposal. The Conservation Commission, Inland Wetlands Agency (CCIWA) concern is that the wetlands, which comprise 13.59 acres of the 40.79 acre project will be adversely affected by water runoff from the development. Meanwhile, the planning and zoning commission’s concerns have been with parking, traffic and fire truck access and snow storage, as well as effect on the wetlands. As voicesnews tells MHProNews, the discussion of the application will be taken up at the planning and zoning commission’s next meeting, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, in Town Hall.
