Attorney General Applauds Developer's Abandonment Of Yale Farm Golf Course Proposal

April 27, 2009

"This victory is huge and historic for environmental values and citizens, preserving a pristine and precious natural treasure from dangerous development. I am delighted by the decision to do the right thing and abandon a project that would overdevelop open space and overuse water and other resources. The Yale Farm project would imperil wildlife and water quality, impacting present and future generations.

"I will fight as tenaciously and tirelessly against revival of this project in the future if different economic conditions encourage such an effort."
