Local lawmaker tour tree clearing site at Housatonic Meadows State Park

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has removed a number of trees at Housatonic Meadows State Park, which sits along the Housatonic River in Sharon and Cornwall.  New Milford state Senator Craig Miner and Brookfield Representative Steve Harding, ranking members of the legislature's Environment Committee, recently toured the picnic area to see the number of trees taken down.  Miner is asking DEEP to hold a public hearing prior to resumption of tree-cutting, and to provide information about endangered species evaluations in connection with this project.  Miner noted that the "lower" section normally frequented by fly fishermen and those launching or removing watercraft is part of the temporary closure.
