STRATFORD, Conn. -- Though Stratford Zoning Commission members rejected plans for a controversial housing development at 795 James Road, officials expect developers to come back with a revised plan because it includes affordable housing, according to the Connecticut Post.

State law requires towns to seriously consider affordable housing projects if the town falls below 10 percent affordable housing. Determining whether housing is affordable involves a formula that generally says it has to be 30 percent or less of an income that's no more than 80 percent of the area's median income, the Connecticut Post said.

Zoning commission members cited concerns from neighbors about negative impact to sewer systems, well water, traffic and area wildlife, the Connecticut Post reported. The proposal would build 72 houses on less than 5 acres in an area where one house per acre is typical, the Connecticut Post reported.
