Making Democracy Work

Maximize the Preservation of Undeveloped Properties in The Town of Fairfield (2001)

The League supports the following measures:

  • Acquire more land to meet the minimum standards recommended by the Land Acquisition Commission at 70 acres per 1,000 population.
  • Land currently managed by the Conservation Commission as designated open-space area should be maintained as undeveloped open space.
  • Alternatives to public funding for acquisition of open space should be encouraged, such as those suggested by the Land Acquisition Commission.
  • The League of Women Voters of Fairfield actively should pursue a program of educating the public regarding the financial benefits of land donation for open space.
