Stamford officials worry about year-round beer garden noise

STAMFORD — As developers plan to retrofit a number of properties on Pacific Street in the South End, city officials want them to consider the impact the new spaces may have on the community – particularly around noise.

The money will flow through town and go to Conor Horrigan’s ScrapWorks LLC. Horrigan is the founder of Half Full Brewery, whose Pacific Street Third Place location is part of the retrofit project.

For Republican David Watkins, who represents the Shippan neighborhood, the plans were reminiscent of residents’ complaints about beer gardens.

“When I see something about a beer garden, it reminds me of how many calls and issues I’ve had with previous beer gardens and noise and all that stuff,” Watkins said during a Sept. 12 board meeting of the Representatives Steering Committee, which sets the agendas monthly for the entire Executive Board and its committees.

In an email to The Stamford Advocate, Horrigan said he recently met with Watkins to discuss the project.
