  1. Zoning for hotel at 120 Old Post Rd is not a good idea. Having a corporate building there is one thing but having a hotel is not ideal for that area. Increase in traffic and quality of life issues-More noise at night for residents across the street or even in close by neighborhoods. Local residents should fight that one.
