That Lincoln Log fellow is fulminating in his paper over the town’s “decision” to allow Dunkin Donuts to open in Old Greenwich. I haven’t had a chance to check this with Fudrucker, my source for all matters zoning, but from what I read, P&Z had no control over this store: it’s a permitted use and no special exceptions or variances were required. If the space it fits, you must permit. Or something like that.
I’m not wild about DD coming across the street because the very small parking space behind my office, which I pay rent on, is bound to be clogged with illegal parkers – whom we will tow, but what a pain. That said, that’s not the doughnut shop’s problem. Besides, if old Abe Lincoln there really thinks, as he says he does, that Dunkin Donuts brews the best coffee in the world, he’s obviously unqualified to speak on any matter relating to coffee: beans, traffic or even whether a store is pretty in pink.
