You all know the land, the former FD Rich property, between Partrick Road and Newtown Turnpike (location map). The Partrick wetlands is a fabulous habitat, home to countless animals and abundant in plant life. This precious resource is one of the largest recharge areas for the aquifer that brings most of us our drinking water. ARS Partners is going to put a clustered sub-division on it that could pollute our water, harm the wetlands ecosystem and overcrowd the Old Hill and Newtown neighborhoods.
We need your help.

Background --- Site Map --- Email the Town

In a Nutshell, the Proposed Development May:
  • Harm the aquifer and foul our drinking water, through contamination. Why?
  • Adversely and irreparably impact the wetland ecosystem. Why?
  • Steal and destroy a valuable open space resource from all of us. Why?
  • Encroach on a community with out of character clustered housing. Why?

The White Barn Theater Property, also on Partrick and Newtown, is now in jeopardy of being over developed with 13-23 houses. In a new form of Regional Cooperation, we are working with our Norwalk neighbors, the Save Cranbury Association, to prevent that from occuring.
