I was dismayed to see that the New Hartford Planning and Zoning Commission voted to change the zoning in the Satan’s Kingdom area of the Farmington River to industrial. Many townspeople had spoken out against it,to no avail. What a blow to this beautiful area and the Wild and Scenic Farmington River!
I grew up in Canton and now live in Barkhamsted so I really can have no say in the matter,but I feel it would be a grave mistake to allow development in this beautiful area. Once we allow development,it will be changed forever.
Every time I drive through Satan’s Kingdom,I am struck by its beauty.Don’t we have enough vacant store fronts in Avon,Canton and New Hartford already?We don’t need to ruin the countryside. I hope and pray that Canton’s Boards will vote against the change and preserve the natural beauty that is so valuable in its own right.
