Thanks to you, one of the most significant open space acquisitions in Hamden is on track! Your letters and emails were heard and last month, the Hamden Legislative Council authorized the Town to accept the grant it received from the State to add 42 acres to Brooksvale Park. As part of that agreement, the Town will provide its portion of funding and has set aside an additional $60,000 toward remediation of the land. Will that be enough? We don’t know. What we do know is that we can’t come this close only to have the deal fall through for lack of funds. Donate to Step Up for Brooksvale and make sure that this open space transfer is completed by raising an additional $60,000. Thanks to a matching challenge grant, your contribution to the HLCT's Step Up for Brooksvale Campaign will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $25,000. Step up for Brooksvale and help preserve 42 acres of open space for Hamden families today and generations to come.
