OPPOSE THE DRIVE UP WINDOW It will act as a magnet for speeding traffic, associated congestion, noise, litter and air pollution from vehicle emissions; create a pedestrian safety hazard in and around Crestwood Plaza; thereby eroding the residential integrity and quality of life, and property tax base in this R 1B zoned single family residential neighborhood.
Whitehall Rd, Hackett Blvd, S, Manning Blvd, John David and Gingerbread Lanes , Ferndale-Hopewell Sts and Collins Pl , Hurst Ave and Westford St would be most impacted.
We defeated a similar proposal four years ago.
