Condo Project Revised on Nashville Road/Nashville Road Extension

NEWS FROM TOWN HALL

A revised Bethel Woods condo project was presented this week to the Bethel Planning and Zoning and Inland Wetlands Commissions. The property is located at the intersection of Nashville Road and Nashville Road Extension.  Previously an old gravel pit with a pond filled with abandoned cars and other debris the property was cleaned up in 2003-2004. Initially an affordable housing project was proposed but the project stalled because of the recent events in the economy.   The developer is now proposing that 37 townhouses be built and has a plan to preserve two existing ponds and a large swath of open space. The area is served by city water, sewer and Yankee gas. The units are expected to sell from  low $300,000 to $400,000 depending upon size and extras.

There's another article on the site which points to a problem with sewer allocation points for downtown Bethel being an impediment to business development. Has this housing project been factored into the town's sewer capacity yet? You write that it is "served" by Bethel but as far as I know that just means pipes in the ground.

I was only reporting what was said by the applicant at the meeting . Tthe town engineer and other agencies will make final recommendations . Since five units have already been built I assume the utility hookups have occurred
