I would like to register my support for the application for a rezoning of the properties P-650, 650.01 from R-1 To GB and a contiguous piece of land from Institutional to GB. - The land is appropriately located at a signalized intersection of Rt.26 & West Avenue, which greatly enhances resolving traffic concerns that may be inherit in this approval. -New site plans will be an opportunity for this section of town to get sidewalks and landscaping that will enhance the streetscape of this segment of Rt.26 -This site is an ideal location for business activities within the Town -Residences in need of services or retail items that live south of Rt.26 could reach the site on West Avenue without having to access Rt.26. This could result in less traffic on Rt.26 due to it's location. -The parcels in question have been utilized for business activities for decades -The request is in line with the Towns' Comprehensive Plan -A redevelopment of this sit would enhance stormwater quality and quantity issues over the present non-existing stormwater measures I believe that this request is in keeping with smart growth and the Town has an opportunity through the site planning phase to greatly enhance the streetscape of a major corridor within the town.
