When Good Causes Collide

The New York Times

February 4, 2007

In this article by Lisa Prevost, Timothy Hollister talks about the Affordable Housing Appeals Law, which, in Connecticut, frequently pits developers and affordable housing advocates against environmentalists and wetlands commissions. According to Tim, "the structure of the law puts the focus on environmental issues right from the beginning if the town wants to oppose it. The towns realize that if they want to stop an affordable housing project, the environmental issues are the way to do it."
