A legal notice submitted to The Newtown Bee is advising residents that the Newtown Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) will be conducting public hearings next month on a proposed three-story apartment building on South Main Street near the intersection of Borough Lane.
Grace you are missed always but especially today, Thanksgiving. We all just commented on how much we miss you and your wonderful fruitcakes. I know you are resting in peace so I won’t stay on. Love Bonnie & Attila, Darlene & Chris, and Ronnie & Freddie. Love to you always and forever. ❤️ ☮️ 😊
Hi there. Newtown is such a lovely community. Through siblings & marriage & longevity I have extended family currently living there. The inescapable reality for residents are the horrendous events that have happened over the years: Sandy Hook Elementary School is incomprehensible; & the consecutive deaths of Regina Brown; Helle Crafts; & Elizabeth Gough-Heath, stemming from domestic violence back in the 1980s. I’m simply sending well wishes just before Thanksgiving 2021; that the community of Newtown has rebounded only to have that virus bestowed EVERY WHERE on EVERYONE. One nation under God. Thank you. Amen.
The proposed ordinance would have done nothing to prevent the tragedy on December 14th. How is this proposed ordinance anything other than a nod towards feelings? Why is the NAA taking the easy road? Why aren't they going to the Federal level to work on sensible gun solutions? Is it just too hard, so they target our small town with a very limited local ordinance? The NAA claims that its mission is to "achieve the steady and continuous reduction of gun violence. I don't see how this ordinance is aligned with their mission. It gets them in the news and when the ordinance is challenged in the courts, at Newtown taxpayer's expense, it will get them back on the national stage, which I imagine is good for fundraising.
