Six Lakes is a lovely asset for Whitney Center. Its natural beauty, privacy, and bird life make living here so pleasant for all of us.
The Six Lakes Park Coalition’s efforts toward the remediation of the Olin Powder Farm site and transitioning it to much-needed parkland addresses environmental concerns while opening the benefits of healthy green space in a historically marginalized neighborhood.
Residents in Southern Hamden need more open spaces and recreation spaces. Working to make Six Lakes a state park is a priority of my administration. My goals as mayor are to improve residents’ lives and create a more affordable future for Hamden. Six Lakes will improve health outcomes for our residents and improve quality of life. This would also be a boom to economic development that would increase our grandlist… It is rare to find large open spaces in urban settings. Exchanging a site that caused environmental harm and a business practice that has added to the number of guns in our country into a park that improves people’s lives would be an amazing accomplishment.
