Lafrance Hospitality Co. of Westport, Mass., received approval last week to build 100 self-storage units behind the former Fred and Ann’s restaurant, where the company also plans to open a pizzeria. The Planning Board unanimously approved the plan, subject to a 20-day appeal period.
The self-storage site includes 13,400 square feet of storage in two buildings, accessible by a new road that will be built on the north side of the property. Lafrance will build a stockade fence to shield the buildings from view.
The Westport River Watershed Alliance expressed concern about the potential impact on Angeline Brook, which runs through the west end of the site and is a habitat for rare trout. Lafrance agreed to alterations to keep warm runoff water from entering the cold stream.
