SEYMOUR >> The Planning and Zoning Commission recently denied a proposed 63-unit apartment complex for a residential neighborhood on Spring Street, but that doesn’t mean the project is going away.

The commission at its May 14 meeting unanimously denied a special permit a Stamford developer was seeking to reduce the distance between the apartment buildings and interior roadways from 50 feet to 25 feet, and increase lot areas from 33 percent to 40 percent.

Commission Chairman David Bitso said the commission wasn’t comfortable with the developer’s requests.

“Everything got voted no because we thought it was too tight, and we didn’t want to see the buildings too close together,” Bitso said. “For us, it was about maintaining the property line distances between buildings.”
