John Moeling, newly elected president of the Norwalk Land Trust and the Board of Directors have voted to terminate the contract to acquire the half-acre property at 2 Nearwater Road on the Farm Creek peninsula in Rowayton as a public bird and nature sanctuary.

In a statement after the meeting, Moeling said the decision to rescind the contract to acquire the property was made “after it became clear the contract was unenforceable.”
The vote means the land trust will seek to recoup a down payment to Bruce Beinfield, the property owner, and also return contributions made by the public to fund the acquisition of the property.  

Moeling said the land trust will continue to support a community initiative to preserve and improve the existing Farm Creek estuary.
