New Fairfield residents have narrowly rejected a proposed blight ordinance. The vote on Saturday was 671 opposed, 633 in support. First Selectman Pat Del Monaco says that although she is disappointed with the result, she is pleased that over 1,300 people were engaged and voted. She says the proposal was fair and would have been a cost effective solution. Del Monaco says they will continue to explore ways to address blighted properties in New Fairfield.
