Letters to the Editor: Think about all affected parties, before making construction approval

Editor:

I have lived in the Roundtree Village for 27 happy years. It is a quiet neighborhood with wonderful neighbors. But the Sherwood Meadows Apartment Complex would destroy this lovely neighborhood.

The roads are deteriorating. Adding 250 additional vehicles will cause more deterioration. There is no proposal to repair the roads.

With 128 apartment units, the traffic will increase and going in or out of the Roundtree Village will be much busier and congested. There is no other outlet to Southwestern being proposed.

Our children are at risk for their safety with more vehicles on our streets, when they are playing or boarding the school bus.

Why can’t the developer stick with his original proposal of building 56 attached townhouse units, with home ownership, which is more in line with the character of the Roundtree Village that has property owners of single-family homes? There are several areas in the town where new apartments should be built, according to the town’s comprehensive plan. None of them are in the Roundtree Village.

The planning board’s previous SEQRA (State Environmental Quality Review Act) process seems to have no relevance on the basis that the proposed change of use, with 128 apartment units with 256 on-site parking spaces, bears little resemblance to the original project.

Please think of all these things, before you make a decision.
