Letter: Begging to differ on Clear Space

March 19, 2019

I read this paragraph in your March 12 issue with surprise. Apparently your reporter and I were attending different meetings.

This is not my recollection of any agreement.

“During a planning commission meeting March 8, Sussex Street residents Mark Betchkal and Ron Bowman, neighbors abutting the property to the north on Sussex Street, agreed they would support the project if Clear Space removed the 28-space parking garage and reduced the number of seats. Doing so, they said, would lower the height of the building and eliminate the sound and engine pollution associated with the vehicles.”
