patrick rowland started this petition to Smart people in East Haven. and

Yes, there is Corona Virus and all the problems associated with quarantines and lock down and Towns have to continue to provide a modicum of services across the public safety and education fronts - but no where in no possible parallel universe is it necessary for any Town anywhere in our fair land to actually consider selling land, adopting new zoning regulations, approving zoning changes, or similar feats of stupidity without full and complete transparency and sharing of all information and knowledge - which includes dissemination of all the available information (both in support and against) all policies or proposed changes. 

The whole precept of small local government by the people is that we ALL get to participate - stand up in a hearing and be heard.  We should be able to easily see all the exhibits and documents.  To even contemplate undertaking such ginormous events or possibly effecting the populace for generations, even is so far beyond comprehension it belies logic and the sensibilities of more rational people.  

The town of East Haven should suspend any and all municipal actions which do not directly relate to the collection of tax and monitoring (and adjusting as needed!) budgets and the provision of emergency services, first responders, and the basic education and health needs of our residents.  While they are “allowed” to hold hearings, no where does it say they are required!

There shall be no final binding votes by any board or commission until all this is over and we return to some level of a new abnormal.  Zoom and dial-in are sufficient for *emergency* updates and actions, but not for a zoning change and sale of TOWN property which DOES NOT need to be expedited!!
