Stam­ford to re­view zon­ing pow­ers over Airbnb, other is­sues

“If the city and state didn't have a rev­enue prob­lem, they would take some ac­tion to this is­sue.”

— ed­diee1960, via stam­for­dad­vo­ “If GymGuyz are $9,000 be­hind in sign vi­o­la­tions (I hope they are get­ting in­frac­tions) then ap­ply to the court for a Fail­ure to Pay or Plead War­rant for the prin­ci­pals. They should be reg­is­tered with the Sec­re­tary of State and pay­ing taxes and fees. Maybe work with the State Po­lice (park­way ramps) on this. Lock­ing some­one up on a $9,000 bond will get their at­ten­tion.”

— Saxon9075, via stam­for­dad­vo­ “Stam­ford to re­view?" I thought they were do­ing that for a while now. How long is this one go­ing to take?”

Route 1 bridge re­place­ment in Stam­ford/Darien starts next month

“This is go­ing to be a three-year night­mare for us that live in the area along

with the exit 9 bridge con­struc­tion and still un­der­way Cort­land Ave. Did they have to do all three at the same time?”

— RM12, via stam­for­dad­vo­

“This is near me. 2021!!?? Hope there is still ac­cess to the boat­yard. Build a ramp from the build­ing next door, their food and ser­vice is im­por­tant to both Stam­ford and Darien. They close early, around 10 or 11 any­way !!!! ”

Stam­ford strug­gles to fill va­cant Zon­ing Board seat

“Putting Michel­son back on the board is the right move for Stam­ford.”

— joe-com­muter, via stam­for­dad­vo­ “I agree with Michel­son re­gard­ing the un­fet­tered de­vel­op­ment and Zon­ing 'text changes,’ even though he is Repub­li­can. Be­ing that so many lo­cal Democrats (Reps, Land Use, the mayor him­self ) are pro-de­vel­op­ment, they might not like him back on the board. Shame. We need some bal­ance.”

Stam­ford lawyer helps push to­bacco com­pany award to $52.4M

“What a joke, peo­ple blame oth­ers for their choices. Not ev­ery­one de­cided to smoke cigs at age 12. What’s next, su­ing fast food com­pa­nies for obe­sity?!”

— phil, via stam­for­dad­vo­ “I thought we al­ready went through this with the states win­ning bil­lions from to­bacco com­pa­nies. (To­bacco master set­tle­ment) And yes, the pay­ments were sup­posed to help cre­ate smok­ing ces­sa­tions pro­grams ex­cept in Con­necti­cut all pro­ceeds went into the gen­eral fund. Quit? You're on your own. This suit has as much chance as a snow­ball in some­where hot!”
