Due to technical difficulties J I am sending this email on behalf of Keep the Woods.
The Town of Simsbury Board of Finance, Board of Selectman and Planning Commission have taken the final steps to ensure that we can VOTE on the regular Election Day ballot, November 7th. The new financing arrangement makes it much easier for the town to finance the property without a large bonding up front, and provides more time to secure state and federal grants.
All the latest news stories, a lead editorial written in the Hartford Courant, and a description of the details of the new financing arrangement can all be found or linked to from our new updated homepage: www.keepthewoods.org. Note that there will be an important Town Meeting on October 17th. More details to follow.
