New Construction Planned for Locust Avenue

The New Canaan Building Department on April 5 received an application to construct a new single-family home on a long-vacant .27-acre lot near the downtown. The proposed 2,500-square-foot home at 102 Locust Ave. would include three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a half-bath, according to the application. It would cost about $400,000 to build, the application said. The owner of the lot, a limited liability company whose principals live in Rye, N.Y., had purchased the property for $520,000 in June 2013 and received a demolition permit for the existing structure a few months later. 

Earlier this year, the LLC put in for a variance to build a two-family home on the lot, but that application never came before the Zoning Board of Appeals. 

The architect on the new construction job is Wilton-based Dennis Peters, the contractor Weston-based MEGEI LLC, the application said.

Neighbor Objects To Proposed Barn on Oenoke Ridge Road

Saying they’re worried about property values, smells, insects and wildlife, the owners of an Oenoke Ridge Road home are objecting to a neighbor’s application to build an approximately 2,000-square-foot, single story barn that would house rescued pigs, sheep and goats. The barn at 1770 Oenoke Ridge Road and its “let-out pens”—an apparent reference to an area out front of the barn that would be enclosed by pasture fencing—would be a “substantial detriment to the neighborhood,” according to a letter submitted to the Planning & Zoning Commission by David and Rosie Albright of 1752 Oenoke Ridge Road. “We believe that this proposed variance would have serious negative implications to property values, potentially negatively affect he well water/drinking water systems, and have detrimental impacts on the overall living environment of the immediate neighborhood,” the Albrights wrote. “Regarding the overall living environment, we are specifically concerned about the impacts on air quality due to odors from the animals themselves, manure and manure dumpster, insect control, as well as the let-out pens being constructed in the front yard, in very close proximity to our property. Further, we strongly believe that the aesthetics of let-out pens for such animals positioned in their front yard and visible from Oenoke Ridge will have a negative impact on the surrounding properties.”

Under the New Canaan Zoning Regulations, a homeowner may apply for a special permit to allow accessory buildings that cover more than 1,000 feet.
