At its meeting July 24, the Middleton Westport Joint Zoning Committee reviewed the plan, which includes 16 residential units – nine single-family homes and seven free-standing condominiums – on a 6 ½-acre parcel that would connect to Redtail Pass.
“If it works out with Middleton, it should be fine, and if our retail and residences there are taken care of, it should be fine,” said Town of Westport Administrator/Attorney Tom Wilson.
It didn't work out as planned.
The Northlake Neighborhood wanted no condos, no apartments. It would bring "those people" into their midst. Of course, they outwardly made 'water retention' and 'safety' their main concerns.
