- FUN FEATURES
On Monday night, the Town of Cheshire got its first look at what could be the future of the Keeler property located on South Main Street.
Representatives for local developer Paul Bowman presented the Planning and Zoning Commission with plans for a mixed development that would include the refurbishment of what has become known as the Keeler House, at 169 South Main Street, and the rebuilding of the old Keeler Stove Shop, which had been located directly next to the Keeler House until it was torn down earlier this year after a back portion of its roof collapsed.
According to plans presented on Monday, the new development would see the Keeler House completely restored, keeping in tact all of its original features, while a new building, nearly identical to the Keeler Stove Shop, would be constructed on the now empty property next door. The two buildings would then be connected.
The new development, called Old Towne Commons, would include retail space, office space, a restaurant, and residential units.
The Planning and Zoning Commission did not take any action on the proposal last night and extended the public hearing to July 11.
