Applicants could either go ahead and have a four-member board hear their case or they could request a five-member board and in that case their hearing would be postponed until the June meeting.

Case 5/10/95-2 HANDY

Carol A. Handy, Lot B–146, 1060 Isaac Frye Highway, in the Residential/Agricultural District, requested a Special Exception under the terms of sections 5.3.6 and 6.6.1 of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance to permit the operation of a daycare center in her home.

She has not decided what her hours of operation will be. She has not decided what she will do this summer but stated that the law allows her to provide daycare in her home for up to three children without ant State license, and she may do that this summer.

Mr. Mitchell stated that he and Ms. Eckstrom visited the site and felt that there was adequate parking for 6 or more cars. He than read the daycare section from the Wilton Zoning Ordinance. There was some Board discussion as to State responsibility.
