Plans withdrawn for sailing school

BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Yale says it won’t expand its Short Beach sailing school.

The university withdrew its plan after a lot of opposition from people in the neighborhood. The yacht club is currently located on Clark Avenue, and the school wanted to build on two other properties so there’d be more room for boat storage and staff housing.

But, neighbors said the building would be too big and would impact the feel of the neighborhood. Now it’s back to the drawing board for Yale.
