I am passing along this information, which I found tacked up on utility poles in the Twin Brooks/Wintergreen area of Southern Hamden.
An "UPDATE" meeting was announced concerning the Woodin Street Fence and the breaking through of a street into the New Haven housing project on the other side.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 P.M., Friday, September 13, 2013, at the Keefe Community Center, 11 Pine Street, Hamden.
(Unfortunately, the organizers seem to have been unaware of the conflict with the holiest night in the Jewish calendar, so if you attend, and can RECORD the proceedings for interested Hamden residents who cannot attend for that reason, please post the availability of your recording.)
Last year, an enormous gathering of Hamden residents and taxpayers voiced unanimous, loud and clear opposition to this adjoinment of the Hamden neighborhood to a housing project, which, historically, has been a source of crime and unwanted intrusions. Mayor DeStefano, of New Haven, attempted to diffuse the anger by taking the proposal to open streets into Hamden "off the table," at that meeting, however, as nearby residents can plainly see, work is proceeding in total disregard of the clear expression of disapproval by the citizens of Hamden.
