Look hard at proposed building plan

Letter to the Editor:

I think we have to look hard and fast at combining all three properties owned by John Casey on Kent Green into one huge land development plan. Yes, because they are contiguous, it seems to make sense to combine them, but then the developer has free rein to create a complex that completely changes the character of our town.

Whether it be rows of cookie-cutter houses to make them affordable or blocks of combined townhouses neither reflects the patchwork charm of our early New England look, which is the reason we have so many visitors throughout the year who help support the economy of the town.

Please do not be so quick to change zoning for development. I know we may need more affordable housing but do it with sensitivity and not the bottom-line dollar.
