Kevin Moynihan, New Canaan’s new first selectman, is concerned that a range of issues facing his town — from poor cell network coverage to a lack of natural gas lines to cutbacks in weekend Metro-North service — could impact the local real estate market, the New Canaan Advertiser reported. There are plans in place to start construction on a natural gas line in March, but the lack of adequate cell phone service is a public safety problem and “is impacting our real estate values,” he said. As for the state’s cost-cutting plan to limit evening and weekend trains on New Canaan’s spur line, Moynihan said, “You’re talking about destroying the economy of the town.” [New Canaan Advertiser]
