Hutchinson wants to continue ZBA work for Old Lyme
As a 23-year resident who loves Old Lyme and wants to continue supporting our beautiful community, I am seeking reelection to the Zoning Board of Appeals. I have served on the ZBA over five years, was unanimously elected ZBA chair by my peers in 2018, and have successfully completed extensive training in Connecticut Land Use Law and Procedure.
As a retired research scientist and executive with seven years’ experience as a senior regulatory professional, I also bring extensive professional knowledge to my role on the ZBA. As ZBA chair, my contributions include hosting a UConn Land Use Training Course in Old Lyme, open to all land-use members; leading the creation of a “Residential Variance Application Guide” to help applicants understand and navigate the highly regulated variance process; and bringing the ZBA into compliance with FOI requirements.
Working with the ZBA attorney, we also reviewed and updated our ZBA processes and decision making to ensure the ZBA was current with evolving state statues and case law. As an unaffiliated voter endorsed by the Republican Town Committee, I respectfully ask for your vote on Nov 5.
