STATEMENT

Having grown up in Fairfield, I have observed the long term impact of growth and development, both positive and negative, on the landscape and streetscape in Fairfield. As an incumbent Alternate member of the ZBA, I judge each variance application according to the unique hardship presented by the applicant and the Zoning Regulations. I evaluate its implications to the site, the neighborhood, and our community. Zoning IS Design, and as the first Architect to serve on the ZBA, I bring that sensibility and experience to the process.
