Pre-Application Seeking to Remove the Requirement to Demolish Temporary Fire Station is on June 8 P&Z agenda

A new application has been submitted by the Town of Greenwich to the Planning & Zoning commission to remove a requirement to demolish a temporary building in Horseneck Lot that was built back in 2012.

The property at 1 Horseneck Lane is referred to in the application as the “Horseneck Fire Station.”

When it was constructed in 2012, it was intended to be temporary to house the Greenwich Fire Dept while their new building was under construction.

By further delaying or possibly removing the requirement to demolish the building, town operations in Roger Sherman Baldwin Park could be moved away from the waterfront, a step toward opening up access to the park and enhancing views

The application notes that Greenwich First Selectman Fred Camillo has made it a priority to redevelop Roger Sherman Baldwin Park and make it both more accessible to residents and take advantage of water views.

Town of Greenwich, Department of Public Works; application PLPZ 2021 00159, for a Pre-Application Review, pursuant to Sections 6-13 through 6-17, and Section 6-22 of the Town of Greenwich Building Zone Regulations, and Connecticut General Statutes 7-159 b, to discuss to removing the requirement to demolish the temporary Horseneck Fire Station to possibly house both the Town’s Small Engine Shop and Marine Warehouse and propose to allow Neighbor to Neighbor to operate in the structure until their new facility is funded, on property located at 1 Horseneck Lane in the R-6 Zone.
