Appealed Wetlands Denial for 20 Lot Subdivision

Successfully appealed wetlands denial for 20 lot subdivision to Appellate Court.  The Appellate Court held that the local commission lacked adequate support for the denial of the application.  The developer had shown through credible expert testimony that there was minimal intrusion to the wetlands and that there were improvements to the stability of the property.  The Court also held that the only reasonable conclusion for the commission to have reached would have been to grant the application with reasonable conditions.  Fanotto v. Inlands Wetlands Commission, 108 Conn. App. 235 (2008).
