With the recent fires going on around the four corners region, it is imperative to prohibit the sale and use of fireworks this season.
All are urged to sign this petition, even if you do not live in Windsor.
The portion of Pleasant Street in Windsor, CT that goes under the historic railroad bridge runs through wetlands, is located in the 100 year floodplain, and is habitat for endangered and threatened plant and animal species. The Town of Windsor's Plan of Conservation and Development identifies this area as a "significant conservation area" and an "open space priority area." We have been trying to convince Town leaders to convert that section of Pleasant Street to trail and greenway. But, they have been very resistant to the idea.
However, we have received support from the Windsor Conservation Commission and the Farmington River Watershed Association. If you agree that concrete and asphalt are not better than trees and clean water and that traffic/wallets should go by Windsor Center businesses, not houses, please sign our petition.
