Zoning Board meeting tonight: roundabout, Pacific Street Firehouse and regulatory changes
STAMFORD — A suggested roundabout at Greenwich Avenue and Pulaski Street, a historic firehouse on Pacific Street and the wide array of changes to the zoning regulations will be discussed at a Zoning Board meeting on the 4th floor cafeteria of the Government Center at 888 Washington Blvd. at 7 p.m. tonight
According to the agenda, the city’s Transportation Bureau has put forth an application for a “modern roundabout” at the intersection of Greenwich Avenue and Pulaski Street where currently a series of blinking red traffic lights is the only thing slowing down cars in that area.
The agenda said the Transportation Bureau application proposes that Greenwich Avenue become a one-way southbound road and Davenport Street become a one-way road heading north.
Zoning Board members are also expected to address a Building and Land Technology project regarding the renovation and site improvements to the historic firehouse at 171 Henry Street.
The developer has been seeking a tenant for the space to the demise of neighbors who, at a Zoning Board meeting July 29, said that doing so would only increase traffic and exacerbate parking woes in the area. Zoning Board members then said they would address the item at their September meeting.
Finally, an update is to be provided regarding the Land Use Bureau’s “omnibus text changes” — an effort, Land Use Bureau officials say, to streamline rules, definitions and more in the ever-growing code that is meant to keep up with the city’s development.
