Toll Brothers pays people to file permits and make arguments. People who like Cedar Mountain are unpaid. It takes a lot of effort to be an activist for free. People get tired and have lives. You can only testify so many times before you get testimony fatigue.
But, it looks like even those weary folks got a victory last night, because the Newington Conservation Commission rejected Toll Brothers' wetlands permit. Hooray! See this Courant article.
