Wetlands approval in local town after long process


SNR recently represented a local landowner in a wetlands application to re-approve several building lots that had not been developed under a prior approval, which had since expired. Since the time of the prior approval the regulations had been changed to greatly increase the area subject to regulation by the Inland Wetlands Commission. SNR got involved after an initial application had been denied. We appealed that denial to court to preserve our client's rights, and then worked with town staff, town counsel and our client's engineer and soil scientist to revise the plans which were approved by a near unanimous vote, after several extensive meetings (held remotely) and review by an independent agency hired by the town. The court appeal can now be withdrawn, saving our client both time and money, and the lots can be developed with single family homes. Contact Bob Reeve for more information on this case or any land use issues.

New luxury apartments coming to Farmington--Update


Update, December 19, 2023--This project is now underway. SNR recently represented the property owner in closing the construction mortgage financing for this 200 plus unit apartment complex. 74-76 Batterson Park Road is currently the site of two large Class A office buildings, adjacent to Camp Courant and directly across the street from Batterson Park Pond. A third office building was approved, but never built. Last year the Farmington Town Plan and Zoning Commission approved a zone change on the 34 acre site to the Special Innovation Floating Zone, which allows for a mix of commercial and residential uses on one parcel. At the same time the Commission approved a 204 unit luxury apartment building with one, two and three bedroom units. Amenities will include a clubhouse, fitness center, game room, dog walking and washing facilities, and a swimming pool. The owner of the site recently sold the rights to construct and operate the apartment building, and the new owner expects to break ground this summer. SNR represented the purchaser in this transaction.
