Since Garden Homes Management Corp. began its attempt to construct a 124 homesite MHC in Oxford, Conn. in 2006, it has endured numerous hearings, commission meetings, studies, court battles and appeals, always being told, like that old gospel tune, there is “One More River to Cross.” As MHProNews has posted several times, a major holdup has been the potential encroachment on a wetlands area that is part of the property. Garden Homes had said in its recent revised plan that constructing its MHC would not affect the protected area or come under the agency’s jurisdiction, according to the Republican American. The three members of the agency voted 3-0 that the revised plan will affect the wetlands and therefore comes under the agency’s jurisdiction. Attempts to determine Garden Homes’ next step were unsuccessful.
