Postponed by Developer
Editor’s Note: A Change.org petition, Preserve Greenspace / Oppose Development of and around 99 Hawley Lane has been started. According to organizers:
There is a proposal to develop the land along Hawley Lane behind the Big Y into a 129 unit apartment complex. This is currently green space, much of it wetlands home to peepers, turtles, deer, bobcat and countless birds just to name a few. It is full of trees and plants that sequester carbon, produce oxygen and provide home to many species of wildlife.
The development would not only destroy wildlife, but also flood the space with bright artificial lighting which is bad for migrating birds and nocturnal pollinators. Traffic in the area is barely tolerable and more multiplex housing will congest the streets even more. Please sell this land to a Land Trust instead of developing it.
