To the Editor:

I write to call to the attention of all Watertown residents a proposal to amend our zoning regulations that would have a major negative effect on the residential area of our town.

On Wednesday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall, the Planning and Zoning Commission will hear a proposal to allow professional office use in the R-20 residential zoning district along Route 6 (Woodbury Road). This is the area on both sides of the road from Middlebury Road to Hamilton Lane.

Watertown and Oakville have many areas and properties where zoning allows professional offices, particularly along Main Street through Oakville and Watertown. We do not need this alteration to a significant residential area.

I urge you to attend this meeting and express your opinions to the P & Z Commission.
