Case 4/12/95-1 WOOD

Joanne & Ed Wood, Lot J–094, 44 Forest Road in the Residential District requested a Special Exception under the terms of Sections 5.3.1 & 5.3.6 of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance to allow a preschool in their home.

Joanne Wood stated that she will be holding two preschool sessions per day; 9-12 and 12:30-3:30, M–F, following the Wilton school system holiday and vacation schedule. The children will be ages 3–4. There will be no school during the summer vacation. She further stated that the school will be held in her renovated barn. She will have a maximum of eight students in each session. The Woods stated that they will fence their entire yard and will widen their driveway so cars will not have to back out onto Route 31.

Mr. Mitchell asked about noise from the children playing outside. Ms Wood responded that the children would usually spend only ½ hour outside per session.

Mr. Faiman read the Planning Board parking requirements for day care operations. The Board felt, after viewing the site, that parking was adequate. Mr. Faiman then read the Special Exception requirements from the Zoning Ordinance.
