Former PZC Member Questions Lakeside Home Plans

The razing of a former cottage on Lake Pocotopaug and the clear-cutting of trees on the site is garnering attention in the small lakeside community.

For years conservation-minded folks have questioned the impact development might be having on the ecosystem of Lake Pocotopaug and whether it's to blame for algae blooms there that cause a major fish die-off several years ago. Now one local resident, who also served on the town's Planning and Zoning Commission, is questioning the construction of a home on Spellman's Point, a quiet, woodsy enclave on the eastern end of the lake.

Finally, the Patch and the Hartford Courant are bringing this forward. Carey seems never to believe there are any violations in these matters, but anyone who is a long-time resident and lives on or near the lake has watched unchecked development in East Hampton destroy the lake for the last 2 decades. If 68 Spellman Point is not in violation of the rules that protect the lake, then there are no violations that will ever be subject to enforcement.
