Make Your Voice Heard on 8-30g

Next week, Milford and Orange residents will have an opportunity to speak directly to state lawmakers about the controversial housing law known as 8-30g.

The 8-30g law:

  • Has been used by developers to bypass local control and zoning regulations.
  • Has caused controversial housing decisions throughout Connecticut.

This year, we have an opportunity to:

  • Take a closer look at this law and how it can be improved and adapted.
  • Receive input from local zoning officials, community leaders and residents from impacted neighborhoods.
  • Come to a solution which provides towns with much-needed control and flexibility while also achieving the goal of increasing our stock of workforce housing.
  • Pass a new law, SB 535, submitted by Milford's legislative delegation in an effort to reform the affordable housing appeals process.
     

8-30g

The legislature's Housing Committee, on which I serve as Senate Co-Chair, will hold a public hearing on the 8-30g law on Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

  • You can email your comments about the law today to the Housing Committee at HSGtestimony@cga.ct.gov.
  • The comment may be as brief as you like.
  • Include your name and town in the email.
  • Put "Improve 8-30g" in the email's subject line
  • Copy me on the email at Gayle.Slossberg@cga.ct.gov

Make your voices to be heard in Hartford!
