    I have emailed my complaints through NETRA and AMA... what else can I do?

    As a lifelong resident I would just like to be able to ride my dirt bike as this state eats itself into a pile of feces.

    Since I am poor at keyboarding I won't get into all the details of this absolutely retarded choice for the cops "Rambo Zone" but considering all the already raped land in this state that is now vacant... choosing an "open space" state forest... c'mon! This isn't one of the Dakotas... we are too small to surrender any undeveloped land.

    And anyone who is thinking "oh we will get some go around", or " it won't be that bad " is delusional. The State gov taxes and confiscates and never gives back. One thing the CT gov is very good is being manipulated by powerfull elitists that have a culture bias against those who engage in anything as "low brow " as trail riding or dirt bikes.

    Are the bird watchers or tree huggers going crazy over this?

    Again any suggestion as to what else can be done?

    Simsbury state police training facility could move to Griswold
    Joe Cooper
    State officials have signed off on a Griswold land purchase, where they hope to build an expanded state police facility that would replace an existing one in Simsbury.

    Several state agencies, including the Office of Policy and Management, the State Properties Review Board and the attorney general, approved the $1.1 million purchase for parcels at 100 and 101 Lee Road in Griswold.

    The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has been working with the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) for several years to find a new training facility to replace its Simsbury site.

    Built in the 1940s, they said Simbury's facility is "outdated, too small for modern training requirements and is prone to flooding and erosion," DAS says.

    DAS and DESPP will begin a "due diligence period" to identify any potential legal or environmental issues that may arise in developing the property, state officials said. An environmental study will follow, the agencies said.

    A May hearing will be held in Griswold for public comments regarding the environmental study, state officials said.

    If approved, DAS officials said they will oversee the facility's design and construction. Several design options may include classrooms, staff offices and outdoor firing ranges, they said.

    The Griswold property abuts the Pachaug State Forest and the Mystic Rod & Gun Club. The nearest home is more than a half a mile away, state officials said.

    "This acquisition will allow the state to develop a sustainable and resilient facility in order to maintain and improve a core function of the state police," DAS said. "The facility will support the modern and ever-changing training needs of the state police for the foreseeable future."

    WFSB reported that there is opposition from local residents to the facility.

    On June 5th the State Depts, DAS and DESPP will be holding a public scoping meeting, in regards to the Gun Range in Griswold, Connecticut.

    It is at 7 p.m. at the Griswold High School auditorium. Any member of the public may speak, make a comment and incorporate a question within the comment, directed at the hosting State entities.

    It's not too late (yet)

    just watched it. smoke and mirrors. It's a done deal I'm afraid. I watched the state build a prison in Suffield (my home abutted it) even though the town was against it. They sold it as a 500 bed medium security. Now it's a 2000+ High security facility. No truth involved in the process

    The Government, town,state,federal can do anything that they want. They let the public have a little bitch and moan session, and then they do what they planned on in the first place.
