Old Lyme BOS to Hold Public Hearing on Transfer of Town-Owned Land for Antenna Placement on Boughton Rd. Cell Tower

Information session on amendments under consideration for Solid Waste Ordinance will immediately follow hearing

The Old Lyme Board of Selectmen has scheduled a public hearing to be held Tuesday, April 9, at 6 p.m., in the Meeting Hall of Old Lyme’s Memorial Town Hall at 52 Lyme St., to receive questions and comments from the public on a proposal for the Town to add 200 s.f. of Town-owned land to the area it is currently leasing out at the Boughton Road Fire Station at 189 Boston Post Road, Old Lyme, CT., to allow for an additional antenna to be installed on the cell tower now on the site and to make room for supporting equipment to be kept/ installed there.

This public hearing is required by Conn. Gen. Stat. § 7-163e.

Residents will be able to vote on the proposal at the Special Town Meeting planned for Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Meeting Hall of Old Lyme’s Memorial Town Hall.

In addition, when the public hearing on the lease proposal ends, the board of selectmen will immediately conduct an information session at which they will discuss and accept comments and questions on amendments being considered for the Solid Waste Ordinance. This will be an informational session only and not a public hearing and is not intended to replace the town meeting that must be held on any proposed ordinance amendments.

Copies of the proposed lease amendment and of a plan showing the current and proposed additional leased area, and copies of the proposed amendments to the Solid Waste Ordinance are available on the Town website at, under Current Projects,  and in the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall during normal business hours.



  1. not a “transfer” of town owned land, a LEASE.
