Dear Green’s Farms friends and neighbors

Who is Green's Farms United


We are a growing group of Green's Farms families determined to stop the development of 19 homes and 60 parking spots on 20-26 Morningside Drive South, right across the street from Green’s Farms Elementary school. We have created a website to help raise awareness of this issue within our community.

The Backstory

A travesty is occurring in many of our backyards — the denuding of a Green's Farms Historic District by an outside Developer threatens safety in our School Zone, with what soon will be a city- dense traffic on Morningside Drive South.

This is a stunning act of callous disregard for area residents, local history and the environment.

Please visit our website, https://www.greensfarmsunited.com  for more details

The Costs

We have hired a Conservation Lawyer, a Historic Expert and an Environmental Engineer, who are helping us prepare for the upcoming Town Hall hearings.    The future of Green’s Farms will be decided there and then.

We have raised close to 20k amongst a few neighborhood families, but that will not be enough to successfully contest this development. 

We feel confident that we can prevail, but the struggle will take months, and our costs are considerable. 

We must raise additional funding. This is why we are asking you, our friends and neighbors, to help us. Please join us in this urgent effort to keep our school zone safe, to preserve our prized wetlands and environment, and to rescue our Historic District.

 Please DONATE NOW  to save Green’s Farms!

We still need to hire a few more experts to contest the Developer’s own experts evaluations (all stating that there would be no major implications of safety, traffic, drainage, etc). You can access all reports submitted by the developer here: https://www.westportct.gov/index.aspx?page=1084 

Every dollar counts, no donation is too small.

If you’d like to be a part of our Steering Committee, or if you have any questions, contact us at info@greensfarmsunited.com 

Thank you.
