WOODBURY – This time last year, Chris Hardisty was ready to sell Curtis House Inn to a group that wanted to make Connecticut’s oldest inn a sober facility for young adult males aged 18 to 28.
Now, Hardisty is looking to add two more guest rooms to Curtis House Inn.
Hardisty is requesting a special permit from the Zoning Commission to change the use of the carriage barn space that recently housed a barber shop to two guest rooms.
The pending application is on the agenda for the Zoning Commission’s July 12 meeting, and a public hearing has already bees set for August 14.
The carriage house was home to Tricia’s Main St. Barber Shop until owner Tricia Aquilar moved her business to Northwood Village in October. Aquilar moved her shop because she said there was uncertainty as to whether or not the sale of Curtis House Inn whole include the carriage barn.
The sale of Curtis House Inn fell through in September when the buyer decided more people in Woodbury were against the plan than for it.
