The Easton Board of Selectmen meeting today, Thursday, April 2 may decide whether or not to sell the South Park Avenue property. Please attend: Public comment is at the beginning of the meeting. The meeting is at Easton Town Hall Conference Room (225 Center Road; enter from Morehouse Road side) at 7:30.
“South Park” comprises almost 30 acres bounded on one side by the road that bears its name and on the other the Mill River, one of only nine Class A Wild Trout Streams left in the Connecticut. This land has remained essentially unchanged for many years. Before being acquired by the town of Easton, it was the object of contentious development proposals over the years including assisted living and other high density uses. Now that the property is town owned, it would be unwise to lose control of it again.
Citizens for Easton supports the Town retaining ownership of this valuable asset for current and future generations.
