Sen. Hwang expresses concern over I-95 tree cutting

“I’m encouraged to hear that you’ve adopted a policy to inform residents,” Hwang said to CT DOT. “But beyond informing the DPW director and a press release, you did not in this case in Fairfield, notify any of the residents. Residents that live near parkways and highways understand what they’re buying into, but when they buy into it there is that buffer-kind of protection, To have it unilaterally changed and not be informed, and to say there is nothing that can be done about it and they have no control, is a usurpation of the social agreement in my mind that someone upended the deal and their lives are irreparably changed, from quality of life and quality of health.”
