Neighborhood concerns about traffic generated by the hundreds of apartments and new commercial space planned for a former UConn campus in West Hartford threaten to drag its approval process out for a significant amount of time.

The Hartford Courant reports that the city’s wetlands board hearing on the project, which also will need zoning and planning review, went through its third night and 15th hour Wednesday before adjourning until January.

The 560 multifamily units, small grocery store and assisted living facility developer Garden Homes hopes to build on the huge parcel in the middle of West Hartford that was once envisioned for a “fintech village.” The development plan includes efforts to restore wetlands on the property, but local residents have also called for additional wetlands protections to be worked into the plan.
