State and local leaders are calling for Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy to vote no when the state bond commission votes on a construction project at Silver Sands Beach State Park in Milford.

According to NBC Connecticut, hundreds of Milford residents have spoken out against this proposed $9 million project in which the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is looking to build new bathrooms, a lifeguard and staff office, a concession stand and a storage facility.

Silver Sands is now free to the public, but DEEP also wants to charge the same seasonal parking fees as other state parks.

Many are opposed to the proposed changes and said the proposed concession stand will negatively impact small businesses and it’s too expensive.
