Shoreline Preservation Legislative Task Force Public Hearing

Following Hurricane Irene a Task Force was formed to address the issues in Connecticut's Shoreline Communities.

Tonight is our second public hearing. A good opportunity to share your ideas for protecting Fairfield's shoreline.

The Task Force is holding public hearings to listen to the concerns and recommendations of local residents, business owners and other concerned citizens.

"The public hearings will allow the task force to hear from local residents about how rising sea levels and extreme storms events are actually affecting their property and their community's shoreline and beaches," said State Representative James Albis who serves as the Task Force chairman. "We want to hear from the people who live and work in these communities about what should be done now and in the future to deal with these issues."

The task force is expected to make recommendations for next year's legislative session.

Knock down all the houses within 75 feet from the shore and restore it to it's natural environment. Crazy people build million dollar homes along the shore and then blame local government when a natural disaster occurs.
