Council still considering Birdsall St. zoning change

NORWICH – Eleven months after an initial request for a zoning change was made by George Blood, owner of Tansey’s Auto Supply on Birdsall Street, the Common Council moved to receive an ordinance proposal last week that would affect the business and the few residences surrounding it.



Blood requested the zone change in January in hopes of adding two auto repair bays on the store’s property; however, he was met by opposition from some of the surrounding residents who petitioned against the change and rejected Blood’s proposal of an auto repair shop, claiming the possibility of increased taxes for the area, traffic, noise and the limited space for all of it. The zoning change would transpose six properties between East Main and Griffin Street – including Tansey’s Automotive Supply shop – from a residential (R3) to a commercial (B1) area.
