Unbelievable! This is at least the fourth year in a row that a town, with the complicity of its legislators, has proposed to take State Parks land for free and against DEEP's wishes for some little local pet project. Unfortunately, they have been successful each and every time. Usually, this has worked because these proposals have been inserted in legislation in the last moments of session. In this instance, we have learned of this proposed land grab in time to respond.
Please read Eric's message below and consider either testifying or submitting testimony. It's fine if it's short (but not sweet!) I'll need to restrain myself from using salty language.
It's such an outrageous proposal; we need to stop this destructive practice, now, and in the future.
Thanks for the help,Eileen
