Developer presents new draft plan for 931-unit, mixed-use development
6 Jan 2021
Following concerned and critical comments from several residents of Boulder Court and Hancock Drive at a special meeting of the Groton Planning & Zoning Commission on Tuesday night, developer Jeff Respler laid out his latest vision for Mystic River Bluffs, a luxury 931-unit, mixed-use development at the Mystic Education Center property, site of the former Mystic Oral School.
Jonathan Reiner, director of planning and development for the town, stressed that presentation of the draft master plan was "very preliminary" and there's no application yet.
He said the commission is working on regulations that will lay out a permitting path for an application, which would then be heard at a public hearing. Deb Jones, assistant director of planning and development, said the presentation was so the commission could visualize what might happen based on the regulations it's developing.
