What economic benefit does undeveloped land earmarked for such a purpose bring to the residents ofRead MoreM edfield?? None. Give the town the opportunity to lease the land to the highest bidder - Mr. Borelli or someone else. Then collect the rent and the property taxes, while creating jobs and bringing more business to Medfield. Please vote YES.

CMP--you have continued to minimize the abutters concerns and to claim otherwise is preposterous.Read MoreIn addition to the selective hearing, please take some time to read all the letters that the abutters have submitted and you will easily see that "all of our concerns" have not been addressed, virtually or otherwise. A proposal much smaller in scope has the potential to gain support of the abutters but the likelihood of the required ROI by a 50-70 seat restaurant with less parking and operating with the same hours as Basil's or Zebra's, is slim to none. A reduction in the size of the parking lot to meet the lot coverage requirement for a residential zoned property and provide the required 25' buffer for the residential property in back would automatically reduce the number of seats in the restaurant and entire scope of the project. And, if the ROI isn't a driving factor for the Linnerts or could be minimized by partnerships, then it opens up the door for other potential business options that would be less intense and the over arching goal of saving the Tavern would be achieved. Ce serait une bonne vie!
