Zoning Commission OKs permit for gun store


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

The retail firearms store is looking to move into a building at 4 Arch St. 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.

The firearms store, like any commercial business, needs a special permit from the commission to operate in the Rubber Avenue Design District.

Town Planner Lori Rotella said the permit approval doesn’t mean the store is ready to open. The store will need other permits and approvals, including from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, she said.
