At First Church of Christ, 190 Court St. in Middletown

Roger Smith, Coordinator of the Connecticut Climate Coalition and Campaign Director of Clean Water Action will tell us what is coming up in the January 2009 session of the Connecticut Legislature to improve home energy efficiency and address global warming. In what will certainly be another tough budget year, citizen action will be critical in order to pass progressive energy-related legislation and help consumers hurt by high fossil fuel prices

Attend the Public Hearing on

Middletown’s Plan of Development and Conservation

Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers

v Protecting Natural Resources & Preserving Rural Character

v Maromas: Middletown’s Last Frontier

v Protecting Water Quality

Middletown is in the process of updating its Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD). This is an important document that will help guide the City’s decision-making on planning for the next decade or more. Citizen support for these chapters will send a message to the commission and city officials that we care about our environment.

Your attendance alone will demonstrate your support for these sections of the updated plan and your interest in protecting Middletown’s natural environment.

Drafts of the chapters are available on the City’s Planning Department website at http://www.middletownplanning.com/pocd/pocdupdate.html

There’s a new bridge in town. To provide access to the new CVS store on Washington Street it was necessary to bridge the Coginchaug River at West Street. Yikes!
