Re: Zoning Application:

3101 Fanshawe St.

Applicant: Siew May Wong

Date of Hearing: Tuesday April 20, 2010

Time of Hearing: 9:30 am

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as a request to continue the Zoning hearing in the above referenced matter. This matter was recently made aware to us and we, the community, have not had the opportunity to sit down with the applicant and hear their plans for this business. We recently spoke to the applicant today and mutually agreed to continue this hearing. The applicant stated that she would personally ask for a continuance.

In the alternative, should this board decide not to continue this matter, we therefore ask that you deny the application of the above for a daycare. This property or this block is not conducive to handling a business like this. This is a residential block. When our neighborhood was designed, it was clearly set out with separate commercial and residential districts. We have many vacant stores in our commercial districts, ie along Frankford Avenue, in the Mayfair Shopping Center, etc. that would be a better location for this business. The increased traffic and potential for car accidents on this residential block makes this use unappealing to our neighbors. .

Therefore, we ask that this board either deny this request or atleast continue it to a future date. Thank you. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.
