To the Editor:
As a long time Ford Street resident I am opposed to Colonial Toyota's request for a zone change at 449 Boston Post Road. Keeping the zone residential ensures a separation between the commercial zone and the residents. If the zone change was approved then the residents of Ford, Gunn and Peck streets could literally be facing commercial businesses directly across the street. If you go to Locust Street and Orange Avenue, you can see exactly what I mean. Residents there can see directly across the street such business as Hooters, Bella Napoli and the M&M Market. There is no buffer there.
