What's On Our Mind and Yours
Last Updated: July 2017
1. Proposal for an apartment building at 143 Sound beach (UPDATE!)
The Planning and Zoning Board has received a permit application now for a 60-unit apartment building with 20% of it to be slated for affordable housing to be located at 143 Sound Beach Avenue. The Old Greenwich Association is in contact with the developers, monitoring the proposal details and raising awareness among residents. We are serving as a conduit between concerned residents and town hall officials as well as directly with the developers, themselves.
Our streets are being torn up again, this time to fix the drainage issues that have plagued us. So, while the pain is fierce, its temporary and will make everything better come high tides and heavy rains. Please follow this link here for constant updates from the town.
3. The Dredging of binney pond
The dredging of Binney Pond will begin July 5th and is estimated to go through to the fall and then resume again in the spring with plantings. Please see the tentative schedule below.
4. Train Bridge Construction
Due to delays with MTA, the project is now being slated to be finished by June 2018. Please check our dedicated page for more detailed information direct from the DOT website (see the link in orange banner above)
5. Renovation of the Eastern greenwich Civic Center
The OGRCC, the OGA, The Cos Cob Association and the Riverside Association are currently meeting with the Parks and Recreation Department to maintain a voice on their committee to oversee the design and construction of a new Civic Center building. The Old Greenwich Association has a keen interest in plans for the Center and has been active in pushing for a larger new building than the town is currently interested in constructing.
