STONINGTON — Both the Enders Island and Fleming’s Feed agenda items were continued until next month’s at the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting Tuesday.
The Enders Island matter was an appeal by Masons Island residents Hugh and Pamela McGee and Penelope Townsend on some of the findings in a Jan. 11 Stonington Department of Planning report concerning the compliance of Enders Island activities with zoning regulations. Attorney Diane Whitney, of Pullman and Comley in Hartford, is representing the McGees and Townsend in the appeal.
Board Chairman Matthew Berger said the matter will be referred to the town attorney for review and will be placed under old business on the March 16 agenda. It will not be put to a public hearing on March 16, he said.
The Fleming’s Feed hearing was also continued to the board’s March 16 meeting at the request of owners Peter Fleming and Scott Nye.
In June, Fleming and Nye requested a zoning variance to erect a two-sided digital billboard and to tear down three wooden billboards at their location, 788 Stonington Road, Route 1.
Because internally illuminated signs are prohibited by the town’s zoning regulations, Fleming and Nye would have to prove they have a legal hardship to receive a variance. The Zoning Board of Appeals rejected their request in July but the store owners submitted a new application in January.
