Save the Middle Haddam Historic District - Say "No" to 8-Lot Subdivision on Long Hill Road
To: Members of East Hampton’s Planning and Zoning Commission
We, the undersigned, oppose the application by Long Hill Estates, LLC, to create an 8-lot subdivision at the gateway to the Middle Haddam Historic District. The District is significant for its concentration of 18th-19th architecture signifying the first 150 years of our nation’s maritime history and the scale of this housing development within its boundaries threatens to dilute its narrative. It also negatively impacts wetlands, a watercourse and spring and will destroy the wooded buffer between the commercial noise of Route 66 and the quiet rural village of Middle Haddam. Please preserve our heritage and uphold East Hampton’s Plan of Conservation and Development that prioritizes the preservation and protection of our natural and historic resources, by opposing Application PZC-21-009.
