Zoning board decision on synagogue ‘opens floodgates’

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I am appalled to read that the first step in the proposal to tear down three houses in residential Cos Cob and build a giant institutional facility was approved. It was clear the Planning and Zoning Commission made its decision before the hearing. This was evident by the board head reading a prepared statement.

It’s clear the P&Z hasn’t a clue what they are doing. They stand as gatekeepers to our way of life in Greenwich — which has been significantly commercialized over the years. P&Z has now opened the floodgates of anyone wanting to buy up two of their neighbors’ houses and build whatever suits their fancy.

So now I guess I can ask, Is anyone interested in combining our houses on Orchard Street? I’m thinking of building a Walmart and a Costco there and I am sure the clueless P&Z will allow it as long as we retain the right lawyer.

Let’s see if a similar proposal would pass on Sachem or Osceola, but I somehow doubt it.
