Commission to hold hearing on firearms store application

NAUGATUCK — The Zoning Commission will hold a hearing on a special permit application for Tom’s Firearms, LLC May 15.

The retail firearms store is looking to move into a building at 4 Arch St., Zoning Enforcement Officer Ed Carter said.

According to the property card, the building is 2,385 square feet and sits on 0.27 acres. The building is owned by Haberfeld Enterprises, LLC.

Carter said several commercial businesses have operated at the site over the years, including an accounting office and a Chinese restaurant. The firearms store, like any commercial business, needs a special permit from the commission to operate in the Rubber Avenue Design District, he said.
