The Town of Westport has established a committee and hired consultants to identify opportunities to improve Saugatuck to improve the quality of life for Westporters. To date, some of the consultants' findings could lead to dramatic changes to Saugatuck, including high density housing (300-600 units) and expanded parking (which would mean more traffic, as parking spots are like the Field of Dreams—if you build them, the cars will come). It's critical that the neighborhood speak out and insistent that historical value of Saugatuck be preserved.
