The Middlesex Land Trust supports the passage of the proposed Constitutional Amendment to protect State lands. On November 6th, we encourage you to vote “YES” on the statewide ballot to protect public lands.

Surprisingly, without this added protection, the Connecticut legislature is free to give away, sell, or swap our public lands  – our beloved beaches, parks, forests, and landmarks — without the public’s input. If passed, this proposed amendment will ensure that the Connecticut legislature has to hold a public hearing and gain a 2/3rd’s majority vote before any valuable state-owned park, forest, wildlife management area, or farmland is sold, swapped, or given away.
