Petitioning City of Stamford Zoning Board of Appeals

Help STOP the overdevelopment of High Ridge Road and the Turn of River Neighborhood.

On July 13, 2016, the City of Stamford Zoning Board of Appeals will vote on whether or not to approve an application for a medical clinic at 831 & 833 High Ridge Road. These properties are located in a single-family residence (R-10) zone.

On June 14, 2016, the City of Stamford Planning Board unanimously approved this "special-exception" application. As a stipulation to the Planning Board's approval, the applicant has agreed to contribute $150,000 toward the installation of two more traffic signals on High Ridge Road: one at Bradley Place, and the other at Donata Lane (about 100 feet away from Bradley Place). This is a location that the Connecticut Department of Transportation has already determined does not warrant signalization. The next step for this application is approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals.

High Ridge Road and its surrounding Turn-of-River neighborhood are already overwhelmed with increased traffic congestion due to unwarranted and increasing development here. My fear is that approval of this project will lead to more traffic at the intersection, compounded by the installation of two more traffic lights (in addition to the eight lights on High Ridge Road between Vine Road and the Parkway). Even worse, this project will set a precedent for future commercial development of other Turn-of-River properties. It’s time to stand up against traffic congestion and over-development of our neighborhood.

Please join me in having your voice heard and help STOP over-development on High Ridge and the Turn-of-River Neighborhood, by asking the Zoning Board of Appeals to vote NO on item #047-16, 831-833 High Ridge Road on July 13th.

Respectfully, 

Matthew Quinones, City Representative, District 16
