This letter is from a group of concerned Brigantine neighbors along Bayshore Ave.: …….We own houses in the area. We are very concerned about Patrick Kennedy and his new house being built. This week, landscapers have been installing trees, bushes, shrubs, and hedges. We are livid. Mr Kennedy has installed such a large and intrusive amount of foliage that we have all lost the beautiful view we once had. It is so intrusive, in fact, that some neighbors have seen trees and bushes invade other properties.
One can only imagine what will happen when the trees and bushes actually grow a bit.
Some wonder about issues regarding setbacks and variances in the construction, permits being attained properly, etc. For someone who is supposed to be a part of the community on a full-time basis, Patrick Kennedy seems to be showing a bare disregard for his neighbors and Brigantine at large. We are all people who have paid premiums for our location, and more importantly, our view, only to have it removed in a matter of days due to the whims of a celebrity.
We hope this is something the people of Brigantine take seriously. We know that not much can be done about it, but some transparency and attention are important and may make a difference.
