Need Time To Achieve A Better Solution

To the Editor:

As a former member of the Newcastle Board of Design Review, I deplore the tentative approval of Lincoln Academy's application for a new dormitory.

Consequently, as per my previous letter, it is my sincere hope that the appeal to the Newcastle Appeals Board will be rejected for my contention that the proposed plans are contrary to the residential character of the neighborhood as well as the scale, for a building of approximately 33,000 square feet is far larger than any other residential structure in the town of Newcastle.

The rendering of the proposed structure depicted in last week's issue of The Lincoln County News is seriously distorted, giving the structure a Lilliputian scale, when in fact it will loom large over the track and Academy Hill Road.

Let us wish the board's decision will give us time to achieve a better solution to the needs of the boarding program, and the long range vision for Lincoln Academy.
