LETTER: Shelter Ridge opposition seeking funds for lawer

At this time in our fight against the Shelter Ridge zone change from Light Industrial to Planned Development District on Bridgeport Avenue, we face the costs of a lawyer and scientific experts as the best chance of defeating or amending this proposed development. These costs will total $14,000-$32,000.

This financial endeavor can only be successful if we Shelton residents pool our funds. At this time, we are asking if households will contribute toward the cost of a lawyer. Any contribution is welcome.  If you are willing to contribute, please email saveourshelton@gmail.com for information on how to send funds directly to the lawyer. We do have a crowdfunding website through GoFundMe for other people who might want to give online or give using a credit card. You can find it on our Facebook page (SOS Save Our Shelton). Direct contributions to the lawyer save us administrative costs, but of course, any contribution is welcome.

Your help to preserve our quality of life here in Shelton is crucial.  We also hope to see all of you at the hearing on May 31, 7 pm, at Shelton Intermediate School
