Eno Building Preserved
A proposal by LANDTECH, regarding Westport’s iconic Eno Foundation building, a historic town landmark recognized by few, was approved at a P&Z hearing with the help of some creative design, a conscientious P&Z staff, and a commission with a good eye for planning. The building, which once headquartered the Eno Traffic Institute, is a part of the legacy left by John Phelps Eno. A man who is widely considered “the father of traffic,” his most recognized invention, the Stop sign, is still largely ignored in Westport today. The commissioners’ approval implements the Historic Preservation Regulation from the P&Z statutes that will allow the building to remain largely as it has been since 1938.
