Work at Little Pub building to be discussed on March 12
The Branchville building that currently houses The Little Pub is due for renovations, which are scheduled to be discussed at the March 12 meeting of the Architectural Advisory Committee — potentially followed by a review by the Planning and Zoning Commission later that night.
Joseph Chelednick, the owner of the property at the intersection of Route 7 and Branchville Road, and Doug Grabe, operator of Little Pub Ridgefield, have reportedly been unable to reach a lease renewal agreement.
When the Planning and Zoning Commission accepted the application at its Feb. 26 meeting and scheduled it for March 12 consideration, commission members said they believed another restaurant was expected to go into the location.
The revision being sought to the property’s permit is designed to accommodate what are described as “exterior renovations to replace existing fabric awning and plastic sides on the patio with permanent structure.”
