Vintage Troiano

Big Anthony
meant what he said
to the Historic District Commission
a couple years ago:

"The school refused to accept the commission's ruling. It's like a teacher telling a child no. Why does the school continue to return again and again when they have been told that the application is not appropriate for the Enfield Historic District … Once this paving is accepted, no one can stop the school from fulfilling their intent to asphalt their backyard total. This is their way of coming back through the back door to the large addition to the school built.

"The school made their own problems," Big Anthony Troiano continued. "If you wish the school to grow as it has in the past, the most sensible thing to do is find another location out of this Historic District to build a brand new beautiful school. Or do the most obvious thing. Use the empty buildings across the street owned by the Felician Sisters."

The chairman of the Historic District Commission, attorney Richard Tatoian, is a close associate of Big Anthony Troiano and a board member of the bank Troiano developed, Enfield Federal Savings.

How might Tatoian be conflicted in this case?

The Historic District Commission's denial of Enfield Montessori's plan for a safer parking area is before the state Appellate Court. Troiano can thank Enfield taxpayers again for funding his cause.

Attorney Ken Slater of Hartford's Halloran & Sage is representing the Felician Sisters.

The Montessori parking lot issue shouldn't raise any concerns in Enfield Historical District. The following all have paved lots: Enfield Street School, Tony's Little Store, Enfield Post Office, Alcorn School, or the Enfield Medical Center across the street just south of the Montessori school. I haven't seen nor heard of any complaints in regard to these establishments located in the historical district regarding their PAVED lots. So, what's the problem? I'm sure it has a lot to do with people who have motives for their own personal gain. I live in the historical district and just wonder why this is of primary concern. There are more issues coming from side streets where trees and shrubs are overgrown so pedestrians or drivers are at risk. Let's take a look at these issues and stop wasting time and my tax dollars on a parking lot.

What's happened to the the Felician Sisters and their school children the past few years is just plain criminal. Not to mention such a huge waste of Enfield taxpayer $$$$.

Take a ride down Enfield Street and one will quickly notice that there is plenty of "urban blight" in this historical district. And most offenders aren't hassled 1/2 as much as the Sisters and their students, who by the way, aren't hurting a soul by wanting to pave their dirt parking lot?

Why they're being singled out is anyone's guess, but my guess is that its all because of their next door neighbors, the Troianos. I can't imagine anyone in their right mind, hassling the good sisters and their students Guess the "T"s don't fear any heavenly repercussions for their actions, come "judgement time".
