This article in the Hartford Courant explains that the town voted against having its stretch of Farmington river designated "wild and scenic," and details certain benefits that the label could bestow, including access to National Parks Service funding, but fails to mention what, if any, restrictions this would place on the site in terms of development and whatnot (which we assume is why the Repubs were against it?). The Farmington River Watershed Association has been working hard to convince various towns along to the river to be "wild and scenic." This sounds like an agenda we can get behind.
