Harbor Point

After hearing a clamor of negative feedback from residents over two public meetings last month, Stamford, Connecticut’s planning board recently voted 3 to 2 to table a vote on a controversial license agreement between the city and developer to grant the developer the right to use city land to build a 6-acre boatyard, according to an article on StamfordAdvocate.com.

Planning board members repeatedly said the $5 million in public improvements provided to Stamford in the agreement was a relatively paltry sum to be paid by Building and Land Technology in return for the right to use taxpayer-owned acreage as part of their planned boatyard at 205 Magee Avenue. Others took aim directly at BLT breaking a restrictive 2007 zoning agreement for its $3 billion Harbor Point complex in late 2011 when it bulldozed a 14-acre boatyard on Bateman Way in late 2011 without the required approval of land use officials.
