Dear CFE member:

As you know, one of our primary objectives is to protect the public drinking water supply.

Easton’s three acre zoning areas were designed to do just that. Less density is the safest way to protect the water.

Section 8-30g of the Connecticut General Statutes,  overides zoning by allowing high density development in the watershed as long as the Developer sets aside 30% of the units as deed restricted Affordable Housing. CFE is not against Affordable Housing, but we are against any high-density development on the watershed that impacts the public’s health and safety.

We have the opportunity to amend this Statue to exempt watershed lands, and we are imploring our Leadership to do that by proposing a bill to amend the Affordable Housing Land Use Appeals Act – Connecticut General Statutes, Section 8-30g   by inserting the language “or is located in the watershed of a public drinking water supply reservoir;”  into Subsection (g) (2) (A).

This simple language addition will protect the State’s precious public water supply watersheds -our most precious natural resource

This is the letter we are sending to Tony Hwang-our state senator- Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.govsenatorhwang@gmail.com

Please see the letters we sent to Senator Hwang accompanying our email.

If you feel as we do, the time to communicate with our leadership is now.
