Housing Debate Begins Again Tonight

A plan to change North Haven’s zoning regulations to allow new housing developments was criticized earlier this month. The debate continues on Monday.

The second part of plan by a local real estate developer to build multi-family housing to North Haven will be pitched to the Planning and Zoning Commission on June 4.

The first part of the plan, and nearly 200 people showed up earlier this month mostly to criticize the plan.

Bernard Pellegrino, an attorney representing DonMar Development Corp., is seeking to change zoning regulations to accommodate planned multi-family housing. Mario Diogola, head of the company, defended the proposed changes at the public hearing on May 7.

“These homes will be for our children, our grandchildren, young professionals…empty nesters trying to get out of their existing large homes…not ghetto types,” Diogola said. “North Haven already has many areas with high density homes.”

The public hearing is on June 4 at 7 p.m. at the North Haven Recreation and Community Center.
