Everyone in town had a chance to vote, and the vast majority who voted, voted to save the open space regardless of where in town they lived.
And the 'right' decision was made. In my town I've seen too much pristine farmland ruined with big, overpriced homes.

They need to rip out Rte 4 up by 84 and re-do it all the way to route 10.
Or find a better route to get to Avon/Simsbury.

For the last 30years the towns around Hartford wanted more tax revenue without regaurds for their own town.Today we pay the piper and the taxes are higher than ever.Great planning,or lack of.

I am all for preserving land in town, but why should Patty Krell get rich off of the tax payers???? I would think that town people could atleast use the land or get a break on produce and flowers grown on the land that they technically own? Don't you??

She was going to get rich anyway, either by the developers or the town. She was nice enough to offer it to the town at a huge loss to herself just to avoid overdevelopement. She doesn't owe us anything, she already gave more than most people would have.

I agree she did take a loss, but why shouldn't people be able to use the land, if you read the article in the farmington post, it says that people would be charged with tresspassing if they step foot on the property, i just don't agree with that....
