Developer John A. Sakon and Shoppes at Avalon returns with a proposal for two new buildings.

GLASTONBURY — With construction yet to begin on The Shoppes At Avalon project, Developer John A. Sakon is returning to the town plan and zoning commission with a proposal for more buildings.

Last month, the commission approved Sakon's plan for a 94,640-square-foot retail and restaurant development. Sakon will go before the commission again Tuesday night with a proposal that includes a plan for two additional 4,500-square-foot buildings.

Sakon has hired Diggs Construction of Hartford, a minority-owned company, to build Avalon. It is intended to feature upscale restaurants and stores similar to West Hartford's Blue Back Square and South Windsor's Evergreen Walk.

The commission will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 7 p.m. in town council chambers of town hall.

The commission will also hold a public hearing on a proposed sidewalk network from Welles Street to Glastonbury Boulevard along Naubuc Avenue. The plan needs a flood zone permit since work will be done in the flood plain. The commission will also hold a hearing on parking areas planned by the town at Arbor Acres and Greyledge Farm open spaces on Marlborough Road.
