Fairfield’s Town Plan and Zoning Commission meeting this week was meant to debate changes that would allow for a 118-unit apartment building to be built at the former Knights of Columbus property on Unquowa Road. However, the meeting ended up with one commissioner accusing chairman Matthew Wagner of threatening him over the phone the night before, Fairfield Citizen reported. Another commissioner said vice chairman Gerry Alessi was too cozy with the developer. “We don’t need a godfather on the commission making deals with developers,” commissioner Jim Kennelly said. Post Road Residential, the developer of the proposed project, had no comment. The vote on the zoning amendment was tabled for a later date. [Fairfield Citizen]
