THE PIT MAKES THE MEDIA
Today's Hamden Daily Journal features two letters to the editor opposing the proposed gravel pit. To see these effective statements, click here (http://www.hamdendailynews.com) and then click on "Letters to the Editor" at the top of the page.
You can also help to raise public awareness of our concerns by contacting local media, by asking the civic organizations with which you are affiliated to help publicize the Pit and the all-important public hearing on 10/10, even by wearing the STOP THE PIT button as you travel about town: it's visible, it invites people to ask questions (which inevitably lead to expressions of dismay and disbelief, and very often to offers of help), and it spreads the word. Publicity is key! Neighbors, visitors to our beautiful Trail and parks, shoppers, travelers, QU students: all need to know that their safety, landscape, health, and general welfare are at risk from this project so that they -- and we -- can be as effective as possible in stopping the Pit.
