READ THE DESEGREGATECT BILL HB5429
AND OUR CONCERNS
INCLUSIVITY STARTS BY ENGAGING ALL STAKEHOLDERS TO ENSURE PROPER NUANCED ZONING AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE
WHY IS HB5429 SO BAD?
It does begin to take away local decision making, it is a foot in the door.
It does not address the shortcomings of 8-30g.
It does not have adequate representation from P&Z and Housing Authority leaders from municipalities statewide of all different sizes.
LOCAL DECISION RIGHTS OR HARTFORD POLITICIANS AND BUREAUCRATS
Why would we trust Hartford politicians and bureaucrats to care more about our town and city’s people, traffic, environment, and future, than we do ourselves?
Who decided that our local decision making wasn’t good enough? Why would local municipalities trust the state legislature or the largest cities in Connecticut when they have mismanaged the state for decades.
How can they look into hearts of residents and condemn us all as racists, which is one of the most egregious accusations to make against a person?
WE MUST MAINTAIN OUR DECISION RIGHTS OVER LOCAL LAND USE AND ZONING IN OUR TOWNS AND CITIES.
WE TRUST OURSELVES AND OUR NEIGHBORS TO CONTINUE TO EXERCISE LOCAL INTEGRITY.
