Pizzetta Seeks to Expand its Outdoor Patio

A public hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, March 6, 2013.

Pizzetta is looking for approval to expand its outdoor patio. According to Pizzetta’s Facebook page, the restaurant on the Groton side of Mystic wants to expand the area it has outside for dinning and music. 

A public hearing on the proposed expansion is planned for March 6, at 7 p.m. at the Town Annex in Groton. Groton residents are encouraged to attend and Pizzetta is hoping that those that cannot attend will write a letter in support.

“All letters will be read at the hearing, and there will be a few individuals there that don't like any ‘noise’ in downtown Mystic; the support will/can offset this.”

Letters of support can be forwarded to pizzettamystic@gmail.com.

Why is there no mention of where one can send letters that DO NOT support this? I guess I'd have to attend the meeting in person for that? And why does this article imply that the only people who might not want this are "a few individuals" who thanks to the suggestive wording would appear to be cranky people who want complete quiet in downtown Mystic? Pizzetta already regularly blares a radio station via outdoor speakers for no apparent reason (is this because Mystic Pizza does this too? - S&P Oyster Co does this also - and Ancient Mariner has lounge type performers and also insists on playing radio stations inside and also outside their front doors). There already is outdoor music in Mystic on a regular basis, including the concerts in the park - my question is when is it enough already? Must every business in town trumpet its existence with outdoor audio lures? Has no one thought about the resultant cacophonous din? No one asks residents if they'd rather not hear 3 different radio stations blaring outdoors every time they want to walk through town. I don't think there is anything wrong with not wanting this to be granted at all - Mystic really does not need another sets of outdoor noises competing with the others that are already there. Will this put performers by the parking lot (where the noise will mostly effect residents who are stuck) or facing the street (where it competes with noise from restaurants across the road)? Personally, I hope permission is not granted.
