We should take a poll on the synagogue

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

In response to the writer who has not seen any polling on whether or not to approve the proposed synagogue building project in Cos Cob (GRS), I would like to say I think he is absolutely correct.

As a resident who lives just two blocks away from the proposed site, I have not seen any polling done either outside of the CCFFRR petition. However, I believe the answer is a very simple one for the writer, and the GRS location planners who question the representative status of CCFFRR and its petition’s validity.

Why doesn’t he do the polling himself or have GRS do it? Simply mail one piece of paper with one simple question to all the homes within a five-block radius (representing the homes and immediate neighborhood most effected by the proposal) asking if they want the project to be approved or not. A free response email address could be used for the responders to answer that one simple question, or they could mail it in.

Then we would all have a substantiated and definitive answer of whether or not the affected neighborhood and community wants this project to go forward, or not. It’s a simple solution.

I for one would be eager to see the results published in the Greenwich Post and would be willing to abide by whatever the polling results of the affected neighborhood show. Would the writer and GRS be willing to do the same as he indicated in his letter?
