Meeting in Old Lyme to Discuss SustainabilityCT Action Plan, New Volunteers Welcome

OLD LYME — For the second year in succession, Old Lyme is applying to the SustainabilityCT program, which provides guidance and resources to towns and cities in the state to help them improve living, working and enjoying their home towns.  SustainabilityCT is now partnering with the Old Lyme Conservation Commission and today, Saturday, April 25, there will be an initial meet-up to view and understand the assignment on the lawn in front of The Chocolate Shell on Lyme Street at 1 p.m.

If you would like to join this effort, come to the meeting. Bring protective face masks, as well as your walking shoes and water, keeping in mind that there will be no toilets available, other than those at Big Y.
At a later time, people will each be walking in our chosen small group to document safety and health issues that deter comfortable walking as a means of transportation and recreation.
This will not take long, and the official audit need not be done immediately.  The aim is to choose a convenient neighborhood and form a small group for one of these areas:
  • Lyme Street
  • Rt.e 1 through Laysville
  • Town Woods Road
  • Rte. 156 from I-95 south to the beaches.
Examples and tips will help to start the process when you are available.
