EASTON, Conn. -- Easton Planning and Zoning Commission members voted last week in favor of the town's first affordable housing project, according to the Easton Courier.

The Saddle Ridge project will include 20 units of affordable housing, and was approved last week by a unanimous vote, the Easton Courier reported. The application was filed under the state's affordable housing statute, 8-30g, which places a high burden on town officials when denying affordable housing proposals, according to the Easton Courier.

The development, which would have a total of 66 residences comprised of houses and duplex units, would be located on 124.7 acres of land that border Sport Hill Road, Westport Road, Cedar Hill Road and Silver Hill Road, the Easton Courier reported. Its approval comes with several conditions designed to limit its impact on impervious surfaces, according to the Easton Courier.

Several neighbors had opposed the project, worried about its impact on wetlands, property conditions and wells, according to the Easton Courier. Those opponents would now have to decide if they want to attempt to block the proposal in court, the Easton Courier reported.
