What's On Our Mind and Yours

1. Proposal for an apartment building at 143 Sound beach
The Planning and Zoning Board has received a permit application for a 44-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.
2.Train Bridge Construction
Due to delays with MTA, the project is now being slated to be finished by April 2018. Fortunately the parking lot is almost finished. And though the big "prison-like" wall remains a spot of contention, we are eager to see what landscaping throughout the parking lot will do to mitigate the stone-heavy look. Please check our dedicated page for more detailed information direct from the DOT website (see the link in orange banner above)
3. 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.
4. The Binney Park Restoration Plan and Dredging of binney pond
The plan with a timeline is above however promised silt traps have yet to be installed. The Old Greenwich Association is staying involved as much as possible to bring awareness to the plan.
