Newsclip®: [Business] Sandy Hook memorial planners back off disputed monument site - NewsTimes

"“It’s true - a lot of people worked hard on this and a lot of people care about this,” said Astarita, the former chairwoman of Newtown’s Conservation Commission, who argued that anything other than passive recreational use is forbidden on the high meadow by the town’s own land-use laws. The memorial commission will restart its search for a site to honor the 26 first-graders and educators who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School - a process that has already taken 2 1/2 years. First Selectwoman Pat Llodra disbanded a planning committee and commissioned a new one when it became clear that some Newtowners did not support the plan.",
