Yale Community & Economic Development Clinic - Zoning Challenges and Recommendations for Westville Village

After the loss of Delaney’s to an accidental fire in 2014, the current zoning ordinance hindered the rebuilding of the neighborhood gem. Motivated by this situation, and at WVRA’s request, the clinic worked with Westville community members over the past year and a half to identify key concerns and propose potential solutions. Through this process, it became apparent that amending Westville’s zoning ordinance would both address the specific issue with the Delaney’s site and promote Westville’s strengths as a vital mixed-use community. Among other revisions, the amended ordinance would increase density in the commercial core, make it easier for restaurants to enter Westville, and relax parking requirements on new properties. This report includes our findings and broad zoning recommendations.
