In Connecticut, the Norwalk Land Trust is scrapping a plan to create a public bird sanctuary. The $1 million contract would have preserved an environmentally-sensitive coastal property. But the plan’s controversy proved too much for the land trust.
The Norwalk Land Trust said in a statement that its decision to rescind the contract was made “after it became clear the contract was unenforceable.”
Supporters wanted to preserve the peninsular property to protect a surrounding tidal estuary in Rowayton.
A private property in coastal Rowayton, Connecticut is stirring up controversy. A land trust wants to preserve the half-acre site as a bird sanctuary and protect the surrounding tidal estuary. But others aren’t happy with the details.
The fate of whether a peninsula in a Fairfield County coastal estuary is preserved will be decided by the property’s neighbors in a vote on Sunday. The issue has divided many in a private housing association in Rowayton, Connecticut.
