New Canaan resident hits zoning commission with suit over planned athletic facility

August 29, 2018 01:37PM

A woman who lives next to New Canaan Country School is suing the New Canaan Planning & Zoning Commission, claiming an athletic facility the commission approved “will have more negative impact on the use, enjoyment and value of [her] property than it would literally anywhere else on the 70-plus acre school property,” the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. The commission approved the 25,000-square-foot project, but the resident claims its approval was “illegal, arbitrary, capricious and constitutes an abuse of discretion for a variety of reasons.” [FBJ]
