A retail development in Norwalk called The Village will move forward after a court decided not to hear its opponents’ appeal, The Hour reported. A condominium organization called Rolling Ridge Condominium asked the Connecticut Appellate Court to hear its appeal of the development proposed for Main Avenue after a Bridgeport Superior Court judge dismissed it, according to the outlet. The developer’s landscape plan involves planting dozens of trees on the Rolling Ridge property, and its traffic plan “calls for realigning and reconfiguring exit driveways and internal parking spaces on private property across the street” — both of which Rolling Ridge residents argued the developer didn’t have a right to do. Residents also had concerns about the traffic the development would bring to the neighborhood. “Their certification has been denied so in our view the judgment is now final and our client can proceed with the development in accordance with the decision of the zoning commission,” attorney Peter Nolin, who represented the property owner, told the outlet. [The Hour]
