Petition prompts Ridgefield Conservation Commission to withdraw open space proposal

When a special town meeting is held in Ridgefield later this month about buying open space, there will only be on parcel on the agenda.  14 acres on Bear Mountain adjoins the Hemlock Hills open space.   But the Conservation Commission proposed also buying 1 acre at the end of Craigmoor Road, which allows access to open space that adjoins the former Garden of Ideas.  More than two dozen Craigmoor residents signed a petition in opposition to the proposal.  The say cul-de-sac property values will decrease, traffic will increase and potential environmental impacts are reasons not to buy the property.  Their biggest opposition was that the land would be used as an access point and parking lot to get to other open space land.  The Conservation Commission has now reversed its decision to acquire the state,  The July 15th meeting is just about the Bear Mountain purchase.
