Plan for two new hotels in Mystic withdrawn

Mystic — The development group proposing to build two hotels behind the Holiday Inn Express on Coogan Boulevard withdrew its application Tuesday night after the Stonington Planning and Zoning Commission opened a public hearing.

The application was withdrawn without prejudice, which means it can be resubmitted at a later date.

Town Engineer Scot Deledda, the Board of Police Commissioners and the Water Pollution Control Authority all have raised numerous concerns about the plans.

J & H Hospitality is seeking a zone change amendment and site plan approval for a zone change from Tourist Commercial to Neighborhood Development District for the two hotels — a 97-room Homewood Suites and an unnamed 120-room hotel. Access would be through the Holiday Inn Express lot and the end of Clara Drive, with a total of 384 parking spots for the three hotels and an adjacent Mexican restaurant under construction.
