Developer reduces size of East Lyme, CT affordable housing plan

In response to concerns from neighbors, development firm New England National has scaled down its proposed affordable housing development on Upper Pattagansett Road.

Theodore Harris, attorney for the developers, told the Zoning Commission Thursday that 16 duplexes in the original development have been eliminated, leaving 58 single-family homes on the 48-acre site.

At the meeting Thursday, Harris addressed the misgivings of neighbors who overwhelmingly opposed the development at a March 7 public hearing on the plan.

More than a dozen people testified that Upper Pattagansett Road is too curvy and narrow to handle more automobile traffic.
