Host Mike Merli speaks with Lela Florel, founder of Preserve Remington Woods.

Podcast of this episode available at:


Remington Woods is a 422 acre forest community in Bridgeport and Stratford, that for several years, has been threatened with destruction in the name of commercial / residential "development."

On November 16th, the Planning and Zoning Commission held a public hearing during which there were several hours of testimony from well over a hundred people, speaking on the need for preserving the Remington Woods.

Then, a few days ago on December 1st, the Connecticut Post ran an article that said the Planning and Zoning commission had decided this week to change the designation for the woods from “light industrial” to “residential office center.”

Lela shares thoughts on the Commission's decision this week, and the next steps in the struggle to preserve Remington Woods in its entirety as a wildlife nature preserve.
