Why is the DEP buying new facilities, when they can't afford to maintain the ones they have currently? Spend the money on maintenance at beach facilities instead buying more property.

They are not making land like this any more. Connecticut should buy it while it has a chance. I would rather invest my tax dollars on something like this than waste it by rewarding the thugs in New Haven, Waterbury, Bridgeport, and Hartford.

By the way. Where does "top soil" come from. Is top soil literally scraped off the surface of farm land?

Buy the land and name it after the family that is selling it. Forget about beach land as Long Island stinks anyway. Do the right thing.

The CT DEP should buy the land. Our state parks are beautiful resources that we all should frequent. Forget privatization-we hardly need another "McMansion" neighborhood.
I also think that the state does a respectful job in keeping our beaches clean. Visitors of these beaches have some ownership in how the leave these beaches!

It's downright unAmerican to plan for the future. What this state needs is more sprawl in the form of oversized, outrageously expensive homes sitting on ill-sited, undersized parcels of land. If the state purchases this land, how can we push forward with the American ideal of paved land from sea to shining sea?

No. Are we stripping what little farm land we have left? Or is so-called "top soil" a manufactured product?
