The Coalition for Westport strongly supports the new plan for senior housing on the Baron's South property. The plan is still at an early stage, but it's vital that it go forward, especially because it provides that 60 percent of its residential units be affordable and advances the town's points to prevent more 8-30g projects.

Because the new proposal provides more open space than the original did, we strongly urge the Planning & Zoning Commission to delay its plan to make the entire property open space until town boards have had an opportunity to consider the new proposal.
