Westport, CT – Planning and Zoning Director Mary Young has announced that on April 8, 2024 at 7:00 PM, the Planning and Zoning Commission will be reviewing requests for a Positive Report for a Municipal Improvement and Approval of a Coastal Site Plan for substantial improvements to the Inn at Longshore located within the Town-owned property known as Longshore Club Park at 260 Compo Rd. S.

A project narrative prepared by LANDTECH on behalf of Longshore Hospitality, LLC, states: “The interior renovations include but not limited to a new HVAC system throughout, replacement of the windows and doors, an increased number of guest rooms along with the renovation of the current rooms, updated ballroom and drawing rooms, updated lobby, completely remodeled kitchen that is associated with the Inn and restaurant, various plumbing and electrical upgrades and ADA compliance updates.

The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $5 million.
