A hearing on a controversial development scheduled for early December has been postponed for one month.

A Planning Board public review of the proposed Value Place Hotel has been rescheduled for Jan. 3 at 7:15 p.m. at Town Hall. Some neighbors are opposing the four-story hotel at the intersection of Route 9 and Lake Street.

"This hotel is certain to degrade appearance, convenience and safety of our neighborhoods, and thereby reduce the value of our homes in the area," resident Joseph M. Simon wrote to the town planner in October.
