To the Editor:
My wife and I moved to Ridgefield in 2015 to be near our grandchildren and because of its charming nature and little town feeling. We looked at over 50 homes in the area and chose our current location, 280 Peaceable Street, because of the proximity to town and the three-acre residential zoning. As an avid gardener, my wife was excited about the small nursery located just down the street. Prior to our closing, we heard rumors that the nursery property was for sale and as a former resident of Houston, Texas (where there is no zoning), I reviewed the local zoning ordinances and was confident that no other uses except residential would be allowed if it changed ownership. We purchased the property in May of 2015 and set off on a 12-month property improvement project to create a place where our entire family could spend quality time.
