Resident points out errors on last week’s front-page story

To the Editor:

In the article, “Residents concerned about density in Fairfield,” there is a picture indicating opposition to “high-density” housing. The caption reads: “A sign on the lawn outside Joseph Conlin’s house on Fairchild Avenue urges Fairfield residents to speak against high-density zoning.”

The caption implies that the sign is posted on my property. It is not. It’s my neighbor’s sign, just at the edge of my property. It’s an easy mistake to make. But I hold the reporter that I thought the sign was foolish because the town’s TPZ has little effective say in the matter of high-density housing. I personally dislike the phrase “high-density” housing because it is a euphemism created out of fear.

He also quotes me as saying: “‘You’re talking about a street where 50 or 60 people have lived for the last 60 or 70 years,” Conlin said.’” It’s inaccurate for it’s a jumble of what I said. Not one person has lived on this street for 60 or 70 years. It has been a dead-end street after I-95 spliced in half 60 to 70 years ago, which is what I said.
