Please do not allow the proposed 74-condo unit on Washington Street in Sandy Hook to go forward. The size is far too large — it needs to be reduced.
If approved, the lives of those 10,000 residents living in Sandy Hook will be forever changed. The traffic created by this complex will only worsen the congestion that we already have at the four-corner intersection in Sandy Hook.
The proposed 74-unit condominium project on Washington Street in Sandy Hook is much too large for our village.
The traffic congestion that already exists at the intersection of Washington Street, Riverside Road, Church Hill Road, and Glen Road will only dramatically increase if such a large and unsightly development is approved.
As residents of Sandy Hook, we sought and have valued the rural-suburban community that we moved to 40 years ago. Recognizing that change is both necessary and inevitable, we have tried to maintain as best we can the neighborhood character that we have always enjoyed. Unfortunately, it seems as if this small area, between Exit 10 and Sandy Hook Center, has been beset with an over-abundance of development that is clearly uncharacteristic of our community.
