DWYER COMMENTARY: Protecting open space in Easton

Philip Dwyer

Preserving open space, historical sites, and farmland in Fairfield County is of vital importance to protecting our environment as well as the character and history of our communities. Easton has done an excellent job doing this. Agriculture and open space defines why Easton is such a great place to live and work.

Whether it is picking up a pumpkin at Silverman’s Farm or a Christmas tree at Maple Row in a couple of months, all the farms in Easton play an important role in the community. The atmosphere that surrounds these experiences is a window into why preserving small-town cultures and economies in Connecticut is so crucial. Easton farms continue to create local jobs and raise revenues for the town and the state as a whole.

Easton also boasts some of the best public parks in the state, like Easton’s Island Pond Preserve. I have worked in YMCA’s throughout Connecticut, and being able to take a short drive from Fairfield and arrive to such beautiful parks in Easton gives me a great appreciation for living in Connecticut.

When elected, protecting open spaces, farms, and historical sites throughout the 28th state Senate district will be a primary objective of mine.
