READ THE BILL 6107 THAT BECAME LAW
AND OUR CONCERNS

INCLUSIVITY STARTS BY ENGAGING ALL STAKEHOLDERS TO ENSURE PROPER NUANCED ZONING AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE

Don’t feel your town will be properly included? Not one of the 23 towns that fall between 30K&75K population? What about the other 146 cities, suburbs and rural communities? 

WHY IS HB6107 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.
*
The working group still does not have adequate representation from P&Z and Housing Authority leaders from municipalities statewide of all different sizes.

HB6107 Myths vs. Reality

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.

Hartford politicians and bureaucrats are actively pursing a takeover of the local land use and zoning rights of our 169 towns and cities. See what your neighbors are writing. We need your letters too!
