To the Editor:
We are writing to express our concern regarding the proposed construction of a retail type building by Christ Church on a portion of the Tomes Higgins House property for use by Neighbor to Neighbor.
We are a supporter of Neighbor to Neighbor but find this plan to be inappropriate for the location.
We have seen the proposed and real destruction of historic buildings and the loss of open spaces.
This project would continue that process by building an inappropriate structure distracting from the beauty of the setting and utilizing open space which is significant to the setting of the house, the church and across the street, what is left of a former Town Green already reduce by the construction of a parsonage.
We suggest that the application be rejected and the applicant be directed to find a more appropriate location on the Post Road in a commercial area.
Richard and Jean Bergstresser
