Editor, The Spotlight;
This is my second letter to your paper in regards to the proposed soccer complex.
According to The Spotlight (“Second round for soccer complex,” Aug. 20), Afrim Nezaj is again attempting to build next to Memory Gardens.
As I previously stated, my home on Wilshire Drive is directly across from Memory Gardens. We had it built in 1970. My husband used to say we had to buy plot in Memory Gardens so we could always look across the road and see our home.
The place for this soccer complex is NOT next to the cemetery.
Citing the extra traffic, which is already enough. The cemetery is a sacred place for serenity. If the soccer complex is built, people will park on the side of the already traffic-full Shaker Road. We will need more police enforcement, costing the town residents more in taxes and overburden the good police officers. They have enough crime to fight. Memory Gardens will be a parking lot for spectators, and many graves will be trampled on.
This man has enough traffic already on lower Shaker Road across from the library. Let him find other land in Colonie away from homes and traffic. There are many, many lots available.
I, for one, will never access his complexes. He is arrogant in his pursuit. The neighbors do not want this. He was already voted down. It’s time to give up and move over.
