Cheshire Residents Concerned About Jenks Road Development
Cheshire Residents aired their concerns about a proposed development on Jenks Road during a utility pole hearing.
iBerkshires.com reports the Selectmen unanimously approved utility pole placement the week before on Jenks Road that would supply power to future homes, however, not without some pushback from residents.
Basically, residents that spoke said they wanted the poles somewhere else.
Landowner Nate Girard has split the land into eight lots and has requested that the Selectmen approve the placement of some utility poles, but attendees had concerns about losing their views and asked if the poles could be rearranged.
Selectwoman Carol Francesconi said the proposed poles were placed a specific way to ensure safety and stability and staggering them would compromise this.
Resident Robert Hitter thought the developer was getting ahead of himself requested that the Selectmen take no action until Girard is given the go-ahead to develop.
The debate then turned away from the poles with many residents just arguing against the development of any kind in the area.
