Opinion: Concerns over Mohegan Tribe and 'cultural boundary'

"I urge all to attend the public hearing, “An Environmental Impact Evaluation/Environmental Assessment.” It will be held Tuesday, June 14 at 6 p.m. at Montville Town Hall.

This meeting is more about the future of Montville and its ability to obtain state and federal funding for future development and public improvement; than simply a discussion on the pros and cons of “The Villages” and any adverse impact its development might have on the cultural significance of the Mohegan Tribe.

This step of the review process is required under the National Environmental Policy Act, National Historic Preservation Act, and Connecticut Environmental Policy Act when federal and state assistance has been provided or applied for. In this case, the developer has already awarded $250,000 in state funding for preliminary site work and has submitted application for a federally guaranteed loan to continue the project."
