What You Can Do

VOTE YES ON QUESTION #4 MAY 15, 2012 for Phase 2 A.

Push for preservation!

The Trust for Public Land has reached an agreement with Ethel Walker School.  The terms of the agreement require that the Town of Simsbury appropriate $11.1 million to fund the deal.  This amount will be defrayed by state, federal, and/or other sources.  Simsbury voters have voted in favor of appropriating funds for this agreement twice (once in Special Town Meeting on Oct. 17, 2006 and again in Town Referendum on Nov. 7, 2006).  In addition $2.75 million must be raised privately.

If this preservation effort fails, we will need to gear up to attend the wetland and planning board hearings with regard to the subdivision plan.

Report any endangered species sightings on the Ethel Walker land to Howard Beach (, 658-3240, Simsbury's Conservation/Inland Wetlands and Zoning Compliance Officer).  Get pictures and/or audio recordings.
