Lesser Supports Conveyance of 18 Acres of Land to Newington

HARTFORD, CT – Today, State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) joined the Newington delegation in favor of requiring the Commissioner of Administrative Services to convey conservation and recreation easement over a parcel of state land to the town of Newington. Sen. Lesser said this land is important to the people of Newington.

“This land will provide residents of Newington with opportunities to enjoy this open space in their town,” said Sen. Lesser. “This is an important piece of the town and I stand with the Newington delegation in favor of conveyance of this land from the state to the town of Newington for the purposes laid out in this proposed legislation.”

If enacted, Raised Bill 7421 will convey a portion of a parcel of land with an area of approximately 18.2 acres located on Cedar Mountain to the town of Newington to be used for open space and passive recreational use only.

Sen. Lesser joined a bipartisan coalition which included State Representative Gary Turco (D-Newington), Newington Mayor Roy Zartarian, Town Councilpersons Chris Miner and Gail Budrejko and Town Planner Craig Minor in favor of this land conveyance to the town of Newington.
