The Sun: South Broad St. housing complex wins favorable recommendation from EDC

By Catherine Hewitt Sun staff writer | Mar 6, 2019

PAWCATUCK — The developer of a proposed affordable housing complex plans to construct sidewalks along the property's frontage at 126 S. Broad St., an unusual move since sidewalks are not a requirement for the project.

Birchwood Farms, formerly known as Stonington Village, will also build sidewalks along the northwest side of its 1,000-foot access road, said Harry Heller, an attorney with Heller, Heller & McCoy in Uncasville, who represented the developer, AJ Holdings LLC, of Baltic, Conn., at a special Economic Development Commission meeting Tuesday at the Pawcatuck Fire Station.

“It will be, rather than an apartment house type of setting, this is going to be a community setting with its own community road, sidewalks and ample yard area to provide a different quality of living than you would find in typical multifamily housing,” said Heller.

The 40-unit housing complex, comprised of 20 duplexes on a 25-acre site, came before the Planning and Zoning Commission on Feb. 5 for a public hearing but the commission continued the proceedings to March 19, citing incomplete information on the application.
