Stamford is Talking About ADUs

“Some Stamford residents say ADUs are a disastrous idea”

A follow-up to NSA’s previous communications to members on ADU opt-out and zoning public meetings, from the CT Observer:

“Now that it’s done, the Zoning Board must hold a public hearing on opting out. The board then votes on whether to opt out. If they vote yes, the matter goes before the Board of Representatives, which must approve the opt-out with a ⅔ majority vote… The law was immediately contentious because it superseded local zoning regulations. To get it passed, state legislators included the opt-out, and gave local zoning boards the authority to initiate the process.”

NSA notes that the long-term viability of the aquifers relied on by many homes in North Stamford – which do not have a public water supply and need private wells for water – is not directly addressed by comments from Aquarion.
