Opposing zone change for 38 Hubbard St:Promote improvement not overdevelopment

The undersigned urge GlastonburyTown officials serving on the Town Planning and Zoning Commission and the Town Council to properly apply the ordinances, regulations and common sense and reject the application for rezoning 38 Hubbard St. to convert this building to 40 apartments on a 1.2 acre parcel. While we are in support of improving the appearance of this property, we believe that this proposal does not reflect the underlying character of the district. We believe that the unparalleled density of this project will have irreversible and detrimental impacts on the historic Green and create parking, traffic and safety issues that will negatively affect the neighborhood and property values.

Discussion

  • Kathy Hoogewerff Nothing about this potential conversion of 38 Hubbard Street offers anything positive to the Historic Green, the neighbors or the people of Glastonbury that enjoy the beauty of the Green. The developer requires this level of overdevelopment/population density to make the project profitable for the developer. I am trusting that our elected and appointed officials at the TPZ and the Town Council will do the right thing for the Green and those of us that respect the Historic character of the Green and the neighboring Historic District and reject the application for rezoning and conversion of 38 Hubbard Street.

  • Anonymous The green is a beautiful historic place that makes our town. Please do not approve this project!

  • Janinne Karahalios I do not support this project.
