Action Change The Zoning

We need to change the Zoning!
Here’s How:

1. Go to Zone Bridgeport  https://zonebridgeport.com/were-listening

2. Fill in your info.

3. Write your own or copy paste this  suggested script:

Change the entirety of the 422 acre Remington Woods zoning to a zone that would be for a protected nature, wildlife preserve with walking paths, no development or any other use. Win Win Use existing vacant commercial buildings for expanded commerce. Use vacant lots and schoolyards for community gardens. Use existing parks for ballfields, landscaping etc.while preserving this rare natural treasure.

Any development or use would destroy the forest community that contributes crucial life services to the surrounding urban communities. That would put the city at risk, would increase physical and mental illness, increase our risk in pandemics, worsen our resilience to and add to the climate and wildlife crisis. It would increase Nature deficit disorder, environmental racism, generational Nature amnesia, urban stress, and more.

Preserving Remington Woods as a forest community would ensure the continuance of the many critical life services it currently provides as well as adding more with respectful human access. The real benefits of health both physical and mental, reducing pandemic, increasing quality of life, cleaning the air, carbon sequestration, lower energy costs, flood control, cooling the air, reducing storms, wildlife protection, and much more would be secured.

Bridgeport would be healthier, happier, safer. and making a sustainable more resilient future for this area. We would be valuing Nature enhance our image, and be part of the solution. We depend on Nature for our survival, Nature needs it’s place. In Bridgeport that place is Remington Woods.

He aquí cómo:

1. Ir a Zone Bridgeport https://zonebridgeport.com/were-listening

2. Rellene su información.

3. Escribe el tuyo o copia y pega este script sugerido:

Cambie la totalidad de la zonificación de 422 acres Remington Woods a una zona que sería para una naturaleza protegida, reserva de vida silvestre con senderos para caminar, sin desarrollo o cualquier otro uso. Ganar ganar Utilice edificios comerciales vacantes existentes para el comercio expandido. Use terrenos baldíos y patios escolares para jardines comunitarios. Utilice los parques existentes para campos de pelota, paisajismo, etc.mientras preserva este raro tesoro natural.

Cualquier desarrollo o uso destruiría la comunidad forestal que aporta servicios vitales cruciales a las comunidades urbanas circundantes. Eso pondría en riesgo a la ciudad, aumentaría las enfermedades físicas y mentales, aumentaría nuestro riesgo de pandemias, empeoraría nuestra resiliencia y aumentaría la crisis climática y de vida silvestre. Aumentaría el trastorno por déficit de la naturaleza, el racismo ambiental, la amnesia generacional de la naturaleza, el estrés urbano y más.

Preservar Remington Woods como una comunidad forestal aseguraría la continuidad de los muchos servicios de vida críticos que actualmente proporciona, así como agregar más con acceso humano respetuoso. Los beneficios reales de la salud tanto física como mental, la reducción de la pandemia, el aumento de la calidad de vida, la limpieza del aire, el secuestro de carbono, los costos de energía más bajos, el control de inundaciones, el enfriamiento del aire, la reducción de las tormentas, la protección de la vida silvestre y mucho más estarían asegurados.

Bridgeport sería más saludable, más feliz, más seguro. y hacer un futuro sostenible y más resiliente para esta área. Estaríamos valorando la naturaleza para mejorar nuestra imagen, y ser parte de la solución. Dependemos de la naturaleza para nuestra supervivencia, la naturaleza necesita su lugar. En Bridgeport ese lugar es Remington Woods.
