I’m writing to you all as a concerned mother, neighbor, and resident of New Canaan. Allowing a parking garage to be constructed in a residential wetlands zone in new Canaan is opening Pandora’s box for further development and expansion. This structure goes against all of what the New Canaan POCD stands for.

The New Canaan Fire Department thanks Gregg’s Garden Center and Landscaping, the New Canaan Fire Company #1, and Firefighter David DiPanni for their donations and support in beautifying the Firehouse and 9/11 Memorial.   
Gregg has continued the annual tradition of donating the flower to the firehouse that his father John Strba started over a decade earlier. Firefighter DiPanni, a firefighter that served the town for 30 years, leads and ensures the success of the project every year. Everyone’s efforts are appreciated in maintaining the Town of New Canaan’s vibrancy through the seasons.

Dear Editor,

My first year as chair of the St Mark’s May Fair is complete. I want to express my gratitude to the many who helped support our Parish’s annual event to contribute to those in our community who can use our financial and spiritual support! 

May Fair needs New Canaan – and I believe New Canaan is better for having a May Fair! To witness the multi-generations coming together to enjoy the fair, renew acquaintances, and kick off the summer season was indeed special to observe – both from afar and in the thick of it. 

A special thanks to our 75th anniversary Diamond Jubilee sponsors Karl Chevrolet and Walter Stewart’s Market for their loyal annual support – along with our other generous town business sponsors, including Bankwell, The Sigg Team, Lifetime Landscaping, Pennyweights, CD Interiors, Newcanaanite, New Canaan Sentinel, and Zumbach’s Coffee. 

Thanks to our caring New Canaan Police Department, our EMS corps, the CERT organization, and the great drivers at Get About who help our patrons get to the fair – all safely.

To the Editor:

Here’s a habit the Planning and Zoning Commission should adopt that would benefit both itself and the town as a whole: P&Z should learn to say, “No.”

That would be a worthwhile solution to the challenges the P&Z routinely faces, and one that might have saved the town many expensive, time-consuming headaches in the not-too-distant past. And it could again, soon: most recently, St. Luke’s School has asked P&Z to agree to a change in the town’s zoning ordinance that would enable the school to build a one-story, 177-car parking garage on its campus.
