Norwalk has Banned Pesticides on Public Properties

As reported in “Nancy on Norwalk,” Norwalk has banned pesticides on public properties, with certain exceptions, as of January 1st.“We hope that the practices adopted by the city … will inspire our residents to stop the use of pesticides on their own private properties and to maintain their lawns and gardens more sustainable ways that minimize the harm to creatures that live in our yards and our beloved Sound,” Ordinance Committee Chairwoman and Rowayton Gardener, Lisa Shanahan (D-District E) said Tuesday, before the Common Council voted unanimously to approve a new ordinance titled, “Healthy Outdoor Public Spaces.”
