Waveny park amphitheatre town mtg postponed

The Park and Recreation Commission public hearing originally scheduled for tomorrow, December 2, has been postponed.
Set to address the Summer Theatre of New Canaan's proposal to erect a temporary seasonal tent in the Waveny cornfield area, the hearing was expected to draw between 150 and 200 people, Recreation Director Steven Benko told the Advertiser Monday.
Following the Rams' win over Darien Thursday, however, a home football game and another meeting (both scheduled around the same time Tuesday at the high school) have caused parking and safety concerns. Park and Rec Chairman Scott Gress decided over the weekend to postpone the hearing to avoid forcing those attending the meeting to park a distance away.
"There's no place left to move it," according to Benko, who said Town Hall is too small, West School has a basketball game scheduled and East School is hosting dance classes.
The commission is expected to set a new date for the hearing later today.
Details will be reported here when they become available.
