With a green light from Fairfield's Conservation Commission, a proposal to build a 33-unit apartment building in the Kings Highway area now heads to the Town Plan and Zoning Commission.
The Conservation Commission signed off on the project — brought forth by Berwick Fairchild Associates LLC — on Feb. 6. Plans call for the demolition of existing residential structures and the construction of a new, 33-unit apartment building in their place.
The property is located off Kings Highway East, on Berwick Ave. and Fairchild Ave, and is across the street from where a 54-unit apartment building is currently being constructed.
The area is located in the Rooster River Floodway, and has been prone to flooding in the past, according to the project's file at the Conservation Department.
In order to move forward with its plans, Berwick Fairchild Associates will have to secure TPZ approval of an application for zone change, a zoning regulation amendment, a special permit, and a coastal site plan review.
The application is on the TPZ Commission's agenda for March 11. The applicant is being represented by attorney Brian LeClerc.
