River Park Works Towards Smart Growth Development

March 18, 2010

It’s been a few months of ups and downs for Lyme Properties efforts to develop the old Bailey Brother’s property. After working with area residents and City boards for months, the River Park concept of new houses, condos, retail space, research buildings and public access to the Connecticut River received much support then some boards changed their support for zoning changes that would be required for the project. The public spoke with their votes to support the zoning changes on March 9th but the City Council considered countering with another zone plan that would again change what would be allowed on the property. Last night (March 17) the  Council’s proposal has been tabled until July 2010 so David Clem and staff at Lyme Properties will begin working towards their official application for this interesting development. A project that may lead to trail connections between the Rte. 4 bridge to WRJ to the south and up to Wilder Dam to the north.
