Wilton Approves Commerce Park Changes and Batting Practice Plan

WILTON — At its meeting on April 26, the Wilton Planning Board approved new construction in Commerce Park on Ballard Road and set a public hearing for the conversion of a Route 50 building into a facility for batting practice.

According to Lucy Harlow, the board’s executive secretary, amendments were approved to the original site plans of Granite and Marble Works, Inc. and KLN, LLC.

Granite and Marble Works plans an 8,500-square-foot addition at its 8 Commerce Park Drive location, which necessitated an adjustment to the property line as well.

KLN plans to add 9,600 square feet of space to its 12 Commerce Park Dr. location.

The board also gave initial approval to a proposal by Bret McArthur, owner of the Slugger’s Den at 175 Ballston Avenue, to convert the building at 4252/54 Route 50—north of the retail district—into another local site for indoor batting practice.

“It’s nothing that major,” McArthur said when contacted about the plan in March. He said the facility “will be a good fit” for Wilton.

The Slugger’s Den is open to members and non-members, and lists rental rates online between $25 and $80 for 30- or 60-mintue practice sessions for batters.

Harlow said the Wilton Planning Board set a public hearing on May 17 for McArthur’s site plan.
