A keynote address has been delivered by Wilton state Senator Toni Boucher during the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters annual Environmental Summit.

Boucher said during the event that Connecticut, as a small state, is under pressure from development–and that there must be a balance with protecting the state’s character. She called for good development to occur, particularly in places near mass transit.

The 14th annual summit was held earlier this month in Hartford. During the event, State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Comissioner Robert Klee presented his goals for the coming year.
