“Hello, I was stopped outside of Greenology in New Canaan while my partner ran in to grab an Uber order. I was there for less than 2 minutes before I was approached by an extremely rude woman with a horrible attitude pointing her phone camera at me. I rolled down my window and told her I was only stopped here for a minute, we had an order already called in that we were just picking up. She told me that I needed to move my car so I told her I would, at the same time my partner came out and got in the car.

Town: Land Use Attorney’s Comments Delay Filing of Moratorium Application

A prominent land use attorney’s feedback on the town’s application for relief from a state affordable housing law has delayed its widely anticipated submission, officials say. In reference to the application for a four-year “moratorium” for the town, First Selectman Kevin Moynihan said Tuesday that “after getting some comments from a rather skilled lawyer who wrote the law, we’re going to get that back in very soon.” The lawyer in question, Tim Hollister, “makes a habit commenting on people’s applications before they’re even filed,” Moynihan told members of the Board of Finance during an update at their regular meeting, held in Town Hall and via videoconference. “That’s what the public comment period is for,” Moynihan said. “Since he [Hollister] wrote the law, he knows how to use it.”

Tucker Murphy, administrative officer under Moynihan, had said during the April 19 Board of Selectmen meeting that the town anticipated submitting the application two weeks ago (April 28).
