My guess is Harborside will be turned into either an extension of the court house, senior housingRead Moreor a downtown parking complex. Stay tuned folks

My guess is a Charter School. Why? Because that is Gov. Malloy's goal, the privatization of theRead MoreConn ecticut public school system. Mayor Blake does what Gov. Malloy wants and needs.

Common Core is a corporate investment created by our government, supported by all levels ofRead Moregovernme nt. Common Core is the start of training kids their liberties are given by the government and can be taken. The constitution is being over ruled by the treaties with the UN. The people are at fault for the present condition of our government and the people will be the fault not changing it before it's too late. PS the fore major controlled factors in the USA: --education, how do you change the future or plan for the future? training and educate the future. Common Core is the start the government privatizing the public education system where corporate America will run the "BUSINESS AND THEIR PRODUCTS" --insurance, insurance companies rule all aspect of it's businesses. Medical, Business, Health, Life, Auto and so many more. Insurance companies dictate to the world what they will cover and what they will pay. --guns, disarming the people. The people to be defenseless. --homeland security- do what they want regardless of the people's rights and liberties.

Yes Alice I did. I started my own news website called Milford Now that covered only Milford, andRead MoreMil ford Patch hired me to run their site. It's been great, and we're always striving to do better.

@MikeP...It is not uncommon to have multiple towers at one site...You can easily see it if you goRead Moreon the web. Keep this in mind, AT&T is in a race to get a ahead of Verizon in the mobile communications business...They actually sold their Uverse (DSL) lanline in CT to Frontier. They also sold their cell towers to Crown Castle, who co-incidentally own 4 of the 20 cell towers in Milford. Last year they tried to purchase Leap (a wireless company)...This is much bigger than people truly understand. There are long range plans here that will go beyond just having a single tower on Eel's Hill...What's I actually find amusing is that I am receiving emails from recruiters for contract working for AT&T in CT, it states the contractor will transition to Frontier during the assignment...Each day this only gets better...

As an At&t customer I can tell you first hand their coverage is terrible. I rarely have moreRead Moretha n One bar on my pantech phone. Most of the time I get the messages on my screen, "Emergency call only" "Send failed" or the blooming "X" over the wireless bars. My phone has been to AT&T and the sim card was replaced, I tried several models of different phones and the results were always the same. Yet Verizon has the bulk of these towers and "Fleeces" the people of Milford accordingly. Its what I call a Monopoly. I think the feds need to redistribute the allowable uses of the existing towers to include others.

@Rocco...Not sure where you live, I've been w/AT&T for years and never had an issue withRead Morerecepti on and I live in the area. This is a snake oil salesman's deal AT&T is trying to propose to the city. People do not realize what will happen if they sign it.

From the James Brown for Congress website, under Platform, it says, "If we must fight a war,Read Morewe must declare war and then fight to win decisively. This will send a message to the world not to mess with the U.S. Which will mean fewer wars in the future." Sounds like something one would read in an essay by a 12 year old who got assigned to write about the pros and cons of isolationism.
Christopher Schaefer July 16, 2014 at 01:29 PM
"If we must fight a war, we must declare war" sounds like somewhat who actually knowsRead Morethe US Constitution--which only grants Congress--NOT the President--the power to declare war. Presidents of BOTH parties have abused and misinterpreted the clause that makes the President "commander in chief". The first major incident of such abuse was Truman in Korea, which is why that war originally was called "The Korean Conflict", because EVERYONE knew that this was an abuse of presidential authority to send troops there without congressional authorization.

Some facts: Rosa DeLauro and her fellow Dem leaders are NOT the elected officials who voted against Read Moreincreased funding for the VA in February and who are balking at paying to fix the VA now. That would be the Republicans. The Senate finally hammered out a bipartisan bill to address the problems facing the VA - the increase in vets in the medical system due to a ten year war, for starters - and the Republican-controlled House has already indicated the $35 billion dollar bill to fix the VA for our military vets costs too much. This is the same Republican-controlled House that very quietly passed a $287 BILLION business tax cut measure with no effort to pay for it or offset that amount. When it comes to fixing infrastructure ($11 billion), addressing refugee children at the border ($3.7 billion), our Republicans are 'deficit hawks'. But give a significant, unpaid for giveaway to big business (GOP donors?) and spending millions chasing unsubstantiated conspiracy theories against President Obama and they suddenly don't care how much of our money they spend. http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/11/politics/gop-business-tax-cut/index.html

So 10,000 in Milford are against it. That's only 20% of Milford. Less than a 1/3 of the registeredRead Morev oters in Milford. But still you have no way of showing that. Would need to do polling. Maybe the Milford Independents can do a poll...

Isn't it a bit myopic to focus the discussion solely around individual property rights, pertainingRead Mores trictly to a parcel of land that a person or group wishes to build on? What about other considerations like planning for traffic, school population, sewage & waste disposal, etc? It's one thing if were talking about P&Z for a house or small multi-family unit. It's an entirely different matter of a housing complex of several hundred people. As for 8-30G, if it's not up to the challenge of fairly arbitrating these types of situations, let's push to get it re-calibrated, reconfigured whatever needs to be done. All other facets of this discussion seem pretty pedantic and argumentative.
