Zoners approve new district

PROSPECT — The Planning and Zoning Commission last week approved adding a gateway overlay district to the zoning regulations

The gateway overlay district would stretch along Route 69 from the Waterbury town line and Route 68 from the Naugatuck border to where the two roads meet each other in the center of town.

The gateway overlay district gives the commission final approval on the design of a building within the district. It doesn’t change the current zone within the district.

The regulation goes into effect on Jan. 15.
