April 28, 2016

Dear Commissioner Currey, Commissioner Schriro, Mr. Beckham, Mr. Bolton and All Concerned,
The Hampton Board of Selectmen, recognizing a petition of over 25% of registered voters in opposition of the Connecticut Gun Range proposal and their request pursuant to CGS 7-7 of the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut that $100,000 be appropriated at the Annual Town Meeting on the date of May 25, 2016 to initiate legal and environmental research, concerns of the impact of our Plan of Conservation and Development, and the devaluation of homes and equine farms in the quiet corner of the The Last Green Valley and neighboring Joshua’s Trust Nature Conservancy, we, the governing body of the town, oppose the Connecticut Department of Administrative Services and the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection from its proposed siting of the State Police Firearms Training Facility in Hampton.

Respectfully,

Alan Cahill, First Selectman     firstselectman@hamptonct.org     Cell # 860-942-9542
