Stamford Zoning votes to allow gyms in office parks, Life Time plan moves ahead
“This is truly a disgrace. Upwards of 800 people said this was a bad idea in one form or another. Planning Board voted against this unanimously. The city attorney said it was a bad idea. Yet, it is unanimously approved. This board needs to be removed as they have no regard for the taxpayers. Is your spot on the board that important to you that you did this to the people of Stamford? This board is a disaster. They know how to find me if they want to discuss my comments.”

Currently, rush hour is a bit of a mess leaving the office park and arriving, trying to get to the Merritt Parkway and out to High Ridge. Those that support this, please come to the office park around morning or evening rush hour and tell me traffic isn’t going to get worse around here.”

Discussions are taking place on turning a vacant office building in High Ridge Office Park into a Life Time Fitness Center.
