Chester Planning and Zoning Sets Jan. 5 Public Hearing on Proposed New Main Street Restaurant

CHESTER— The planning and zoning commission has scheduled a Jan. 5 public hearing on a special permit application for a new restaurant at 6 Main Street in the downtown village. The hearing convenes at 7:30 p.m. in the Chester Meeting House on Liberty Street.

Chester Properties LLC, which has an address at 102 Sill Lane in Old Lyme, is seeking approval for a full service restaurant in the former Chester Savings Bank building at 6 Main Street. The restaurant would have 40 to 50 seats, with a liquor license and bar. There would be 8 to 15 full and part-time employees.

The site plan for the property also calls for a “small retail space with a separate entrance,” and two residential apartments on the second floor of the building. The proposed restaurant would be open seven days a week.
