We have now received an official announcement regarding the public meeting with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) in Old Lyme from Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder.
The meeting will be held next Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 4:30 p.m. in the Lyme-Old Lyme High School auditorium, 69 Lyme St., Old Lyme, CT. This meeting will last about 1.5 to 2 hours, and the FRA will give a very short presentation to clarify the process and address misstatements. Then the FRA representatives will have a roundtable discussion about the NEC Futures Draft EIS with local and state leaders.
The meeting will be open to the public in an effort to allow residents and businesses to hear the discussion.
Senator Richard Blumenthal, along with local selectmen and elected officials, have been invited to the meeting. Congressman Joe Courtney is able to attend until 5 p.m. and CT Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker will be there for the entire meeting.
The Town of Old Lyme requests that comments and questions be submitted to email@example.com prior to the meeting so that they may be addressed at the roundtable discussion. It will also be possible to submit questions at the meeting for discussion by the participants.
Reemsnyder recommends arriving early since the meeting will begin promptly at 4:30 p.m.
