Chabad Lubavitch Announces Application to Litchfield's P&Z
Chabad Lubavitch announced on Thursday, March 14, 2013 that it filed an
application with the town of Litchfield's Planning & Zoning to move its
synagogue to their property on 85 West St. off the Litchfield green.
As Chabad's current rental location in the Village Green shopping plaza is being
considered for the the future Stop & Shop, and there will be a need to vacate
the property, Chabad felt that it was the opportune time for it move in to the
property that it acquired in 2005. Currently there are no plans to make any
changes to the exterior of the building, during the time that the legal
challenges for future expansion are being worked out.
The current size of the building at 85 West Street does not meet the religious
needs of Chabad for many of its activities and functions. The original plan at the
time of the acquisition of the property over 8 years ago, was to renovate and
expand the building before moving in. However, Chabad feels that with this
course of action, they are headed in the right direction.
Chabad Lubavitch of Northwest Connecticut's mission is to reach out to
