Southbury could have five new homeowners if the Southbury Planning Commission looks favorably upon a subdivision proposal.
The plan is to split a 15-acre parcel on West Flat Hill Road into five lots — and a new home built on each. The property is located at 219 West Flat Hill Road, and is owned by Ralph C. and Ely Merena Crozier, according to documents at the planning department office in Southbury Town Hall.
The town's Planning Commission will continue its deliberations on the plan at its next meeting, on Sept. 17. DeLoris S. Curtis, the town's Land Use Administrator, said she does not expect a vote on the plan to come out of that meeting.
There are some concerns about potential flooding of the eastern edge of the property, Curtis said. The commission is statutorily obligated to approve a subdivision plan if it meets all the various requirements in the regulations, including lot size, setbacks, and so forth.
The application has been under consideration since June, when the plans were first submitted, Curtis said.
"We haven't had anyone come in and ask us about it," she noted.
