Two of New Canaan’s most popular downtown destinations stand to get increased pedestrian and seating areas out front, under a proposal that’s expected to come before the Planning & Zoning Commission this month. Under an application submitted by a Stamford-based engineering and land surveyor company, the wide area out front of Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee and Tony’s Deli would get brick paver patios similar to the one already installed outside the Pine Street Concessions food hall. “The new brick paved patio expansion is intended to match the existing patio both in material as well as the herringbone paving pattern,” Brian McMahon of Redniss & Mead said in an application filed on behalf of property owner New Canaan Lumber Co. “Due to grade changes between the existing and expanded patio areas, an extension of the granite site steps currently along the building frontage is proposed out to the public sidewalk along Pine Street. The new patio area will include granite border materials and railings that are intended to match existing conditions.”
P&Z is expected to take up the application at its Jan.
