Mystic — Following a lengthy public hearing Tuesday night, the Stonington Planning and Zoning Commission approved 10 of 12 proposed amendments to the zoning district that overlays Mystic Seaport Museum.

The 10 changes to the Museum Heritage District involve items such as signage, a handicapped ramp, relocation of bathrooms and solar panels on the Rossie Mill among others.

While they outlined preliminary plans on Tuesday, museum officials plan to return to the commission at a later date for approval of two more significant changes to the master plan.

These include plans to demolish the museum’s Latitude 41 restaurant and construct a 26-room, 45-foot-tall boutique hotel and restaurant and construct a 6,000-square-foot, 1½-story research building and testing tank for the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration.
