Some people who live in Granby's historic district are upset about the possibility of dozens of homes being built on 14 acres of land.
Several homeowners told Eyewitness News the proposal to put between 60 to 75 new homes on Salmon Brook Street does not work because the area is a historic district and the new homes wouldn't fit in it.
Others said they are also worried about the traffic nightmare it could create.
Signs line part of Salmon Brook Street urging community members to take a stand.
Some homeowners, who live in the area including Lynn Lochhead, told Eyewitness News they don't want homes being built here.
"It would be the last thing in the world I would want to see happen next door," Lochhead said.
Lochhead, who moved into her home a year ago, said builders could put a road in right next to her home.
"Individual homes that would be very small and close together not in keeping with the neighborhood at all," Lochhead said.
Traffic is another major concern for homeowners in the area.
"The backup can be near the park which is a half a mile below me," Lochhead said.
Eyewitness News talked with one of the two builders involved. They haven't officially put in an application, but have ideas for the site.
They said they will informally meet with the town's planning and zoning committee Tuesday night to discuss their proposal of 66 homes built on 14 acres.
They're not sure how residents got a number as high as 75, but homeowners hope the town doesn't allow an application to go through.
"Is that they use common sense and decide this isn't the right thing for the town of Granby," Lochhead said.
The Planning and Zoning Commission meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. inside the meeting room at town hall.
Many homeowners told Eyewitness News that they plan to show up.
