As a Cos Cob resident I am writing to express my deepest concern about Greenwich Reform Synagogue's proposed development on Orchard Street in Cos Cob.
The 20,000 sq ft project that includes plans for 100 parking spaces, a sanctuary, social hall a chapel, a warming kitchen, approximately ten classrooms a board room, four offices and more is certainly not the right development for this densely packed residential neighborhood. Residents are up in arms and rightly so considering the devastating implications for increased traffic, noise, lights, wetland destruction. The fact that, for reasons unknown, many have only just found out about the project makes its proposal all the more upsetting.
Those concerned should come to the next P&Z meeting Tuesday, November 27 at 7 pm.
