To the Editor:
Residential neighbors were troubled to learn that Tom and Cathy Savoca, applicants to operate their home at 47 Circle Drive as a commercial bed-and-breakfast in the middle of a residential neighborhood, purchased the vacant lot adjacent to them. This clearly presents a risk that the Savocas will expand their operation beyond the two bedrooms they are initially seeking an application for. If the initial permit on their existing home is approved, would it be a mere formality for them to build on the vacant lot and expand their operation? Can we really expect that they spent over $200,000 on a vacant lot to make it a garden?
