283 Richards Avenue House
Ken informed the members in attendance that the “interested party” (as discussed during the WNA November 2020 Board Meeting) purchased the 283 Richards Avenue property.
Isabelle commented that she has not received any updates from the neighbors pertaining to this property. According to Isabelle, others spotted the new property owner clearing branches off the property.
Anthony informed the meeting attendees that Tom Livingston reached out to him in regards to the Norden Park property in East Norwalk.
Several board members voiced their thoughts and concerns about the projected future of this property.
Ken mentioned that an additional exit ramp on I-95 may resolve neighborhood traffic issues that will result from the warehouse that will be working out of Norden Park.
Anthony will forward Tom Livingston’s email to all WNA board members for review.
The West Norwalk Association P.O. box has officially been closed.
Anthony has set up a new Private Mailbox (P.M.B.) for the West Norwalk Association. He will send our new contact information to Stephen so he can update it on our website. All postal mail should be addressed to this new address.
West Norwalk Association 2020 Letter
Anthony wrote a letter to be sent to all residents of West Norwalk that provides an overview of the issues we have been following this year along with an annual dues return slip.
The board members in attendance reviewed the letter and approved of its contents. Anthony will send the letter to all West Norwalk residents within the next week.
Anthony informed the meeting attendees that our insurance expired because it was being sent to the wrong address. It is required that the West Norwalk Association pay for Insurance for protection during our meetings.
Anthony is going to postpone this renewal until it is safe for us to return to meeting in person.
Oak Hills Restaurant
The meeting attendees discussed the recent closure of the Oak Hills Golf Course restaurant.
Brian informed the attendees that Oak Hills decided not to renew the restaurant owner’s lease. The restaurant’s last day of business was December 5, 2020. Oak Hills is planning to bring management in-house and will attempt to run the restaurant via Oak Hills’ management.
Anthony commented that the restaurant owner was paying rent to Oak Hills. How will Oak Hills make up for this loss?
Brian said that Oak Hills did not provide the restaurant owner with much prior notice about their decision to not renew the lease.
Brian suggested we review the minutes of recent Oak Hills Park Authority meetings to obtain more information about this decision to not renew the lease.
Isabelle will reach out to the chair of the Oak Hills Park Authority on behalf of the West Norwalk Association for more information.
The meeting concluded at 8:09 PM.Return to top
