The Issues at Hand:

Protect our region’s health and safety!
Speak out against the gravel pit!
Help us pack the hearing room at tonight’s hearing!
Write a letter to the Hamden PZC!

Please plan to attend a public hearing before
Hamden’s Planning and Zoning Commission
Tonight, Tues., 10/10, at 7 p.m.
At Hamden’s old Town Hall (corner of Dixwell & Whitney)
regarding the proposed creation of a
at 4246 (rear) and 4280 Whitney Avenue, Hamden
(between Whitney Court and Bittersweet Lane)

Applicant proposes to remove 250,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over two years. Approximately 64 round-trip truck trips per day from the site. Access will be via Whitney Avenue, both northbound and southbound. Application materials indicate that approximately 8 truckloads of fill will be removed every hour, 8 am–5 pm, for a minimum of 255 days.

Among our concerns:
health (dust and fumes; impact on public water supply);
noise (from excavation and trucks);
safety (increased traffic, including heavy trucks);
impact on area’s water supply, wetlands, vegetation;
harmony and appropriateness of site use in relation to the general area and adjacent properties (a gravel pit in a residential zone that includes four parks: Farmington Canal, Brooksvale, Christian Rendeiro Park, and Sleeping Giant)
nature and intensity of use (disturbance of over 15 acres of land; two years of heavy-duty trucking; increased traffic on Whitney Avenue).

Please attend to ask questions and express your views!
For more information, please contact Sarah and Gus at 248-8181
or Gail and Jim at 288-6648.
