Connecticut — Newington included — needs more affordable housing, Kathy Flaherty and Ryan Beach, CT Viewpoints, Sept. 5, 2018, available here
The need for more affordable housing in this state is clear. The need for more affordable housing in Newington is equally clear. This town should not be saying “no” simply for the sake of saying no, and keeping things status quo. If we can move forward with this project in a manner that addresses any legitimate health and safety concerns, we should view it as an opportunity to show the potential success of these developments to other towns in the state and take pride in our efforts to contribute to alleviating the hardships of our neighbors in greatest need.
