Deadline to Complete Survey on Economic Status, Future of Old Lyme is Sept. 27, Open to all Residents, Business Owners/Operators in Town

OLD LYME —The Old Lyme Economic Development Commission (EDC)  reminds all residents of the town and anyone who operates a business here to complete their online survey regarding the current economic condition of our town. The deadline for submitting responses is Friday, Sept. 27. The survey is available by scanning the QR code at left or visiting: www.research.net/r/OldLymeCT

The EDC would like to understand how you view the Town’s current economic condition and hear your ideas for the future. For example, the EDC wants to know what attracts both residents and business to Old Lyme, and the important issues facing the town from your perspective. For business owners, the EDC wants to hear how the Town can better support you now and in the future. The survey results, combined with other ongoing initiatives, will help define the Town’s economic development strategy.

All responses will be kept confidential, with results presented in a final report by the EDC. The Connecticut Economic Resource Center (CERC), a nonprofit economic development firm, will collect survey results, carry out the analysis, and prepare the final report.

Asked for his reaction to the increased attention being directed to economic development in Old Lyme, Halls Road Improvement Committee Chairman BJ Bernblum responded, ” “The Old Lyme Board of Selectmen is taking seriously the economic health of the town.  A few years ago it formed the Halls Road Improvements Committee and this year it revitalized the Economic Development Commission.” He continued, “Under the dynamic leadership of co-chairs Howard Margules and Justin Fuller, the EDC is working with the Connecticut Economic Resource Center to analyze the current state of Old Lyme’s economy and to recommend ways to ensure a sound future.”

Bernblum added, “CERC’s first undertaking is a town-wide survey of businesses and residents, critical to getting an accurate understanding of how our taxpayers feel about the status quo and the issues that need to be addressed,” concluding, “I strongly encourage everyone to complete this survey.”

Old Lyme Closes on Land Purchase From McCulloch Family: 300 Acres Designated as Open Space, Six Acres as Affordable Housing

Gathered at the start of a recent hike are, from left to right, Old Lyme Land Trust Chairman Mike Kiernan, Old Lyme Open Space Commission Co-Chairman Amanda Blair and Land Steward Peter Norris. Blair, Open Space Commission Co-Chair William Dunbar (not in photo) and the members of the Commission were thanked by First Selectwoman Reemsnyder for their “hard work” related to the McCulloch land acquisition.

OLD LYME — (Press release from the Town of Old Lyme) The Town of Old Lyme has closed on the purchase of approximately 300 acres from David McCulloch/the Jean A. McCulloch Farm LLC effective Tuesday, Sept. 3.

The sale involved two parts – the purchase of land that is an addition to Town Open Space and the set-aside of two smaller areas to be reserved for potential affordable housing lots.

The Town paid $500,000 for the new open space, and $50,000 each for two three-acre areas off Flat Rock Hill Rd., adjacent to affordable housing lots previously given to the town by David McCulloch. If the two smaller areas are not developed as affordable housing within five years, they will revert to open space and be added to the new Open Space parcel.

The property was first assembled by Rook and Warren McCulloch in 1929, and their heirs had overlapping interests. The Vasiloff family re-configured their renowned Morgan horse farm, and moved and re-installed equine fencing before the closing. The Town’s Open Space Commission worked closely with The Nature Conservancy, which holds a conservation easement on the property, to ensure the sale specifics met their approval.

Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder

First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder commented, “We commend the McCulloch family for their foresight in protecting the land and for their decades of loving stewardship. This new open space will be a treasure for town residents.”

She commended members of the Open Space Commission for “their hard work on the acquisition of this beautiful property with its special ecological importance as part of the upper watershed of the Black Hall River and linkage to our tidal marshes.”

The Open Space Commission will now partner with the Old Lyme Land Trust to map, develop and mark three trails within the McCulloch Family Open Space, with a new “Tree in the Gap” trail likely to be accessible first from Whippoorwill Road. Volunteers are welcome to join in this final step to make the property safely accessible. Help will be needed to remove old fencing and invasive plants, and to install map kiosks, gates and signage. Persons interested in lending a hand should contact the Open Space Commission via email at OpenSpaceCommission@oldlyme-ct.gov.

Upon completion of this work, a ceremony/trail inauguration will be scheduled to officially open the property to the public.

Old Lyme Officer Recognized by Board of Selectmen for Quick Response

Reemsnyder Firmly Denies Wrongdoing at CT Port Authority, Explains Absence at Transportation Hearing

Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder

OLD LYME — As has been widely reported, Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder did not appear in person at the state Transportation Committee’s hearing regarding the Connecticut Port Authority (CPA) on Tuesday.

She did, however, submit written testimony (published in full at the link below) in which she stated categorically in reference to the purchase by the CPA of photographs from her daughter, “Consistent with the State’s Ethics Code governing conflicts of interest, I had no involvement in any aspect of the sale, including no role in the initial decision, negotiations, payment, bookkeeping, or accounting for the transaction, and I did not benefit in any way financially from the transaction.”

Reemsnyder gave LymeLine.com the following explanation for her absence from the hearing in an e-mail Wednesday evening, in which she said, “I received the “invitation to attend” on Sunday night, as I was away the weekend, and the Town was committing to a bond for the Library. On Tuesday, I had to coordinate the signatures of the Term Sheet to secure the rate that was offered in a bid. So between reviewing the term sheet documents, accepting changes from the bank, and coordinating with the Treasurer for signatures, it tied up my morning.”

She continued, “In addition, I had an afternoon meeting that was already scheduled, and a Board of Finance meeting that night, which I take a considerable time to prepare for,” adding, “I did take the time on Monday, a day that I had a 4 PM Board of Selectmen meeting that I carefully prepare for, to articulate my written testimony.”

Sound View Sewer Vote in Old Lyme Passes by Over 300 Votes, Pappalardo Says Schism Created: Sound View vs the Town

OLD LYME — The Sound View Sewer Project in Old Lyme passed comfortably by 883 votes to 565, after all votes were double-counted in Tuesday’s referendum. The proposal therefore secured a margin of 318 votes with 61 percent voting in favor of bonding $9.44 million to fund the proposed sewer project and 39 percent voting against.  A total of 1448 residents and/or property owners voted representing less than 30 percent of registered voters.

After the result had been announced, Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder commented, “I think the people spoke and it is time to move on to next steps. We made sure that everyone had a chance to vote with a full day of a referendum, absentee ballots available and several public info sessions.”

Asked for his reaction to the result, Frank Pappalardo, who is chair of Old Lyme’s Sound View Commission and a director of the Sound View Beach Association, Inc., told LymeLine.com in an email, “Today’s referendum vote in favor of a $9.5 mil bond for sewers is disappointing. I believe that many in Old Lyme were not aware complexities regarding the sewer issue facing Old Lyme and specifically the Sound View area.”

He added, “The cost recovery method of placing the entire burden on a small group of property owners is unprecedented. And to further the concerns are the unrealistic individual property owner costs in excess of $15,000 and reaching over $100,000 for some.”

Pappalardo concluded, “We’ve work so hard to unify the town and beach community and have made great strides. Now with this vote we have created a schism: Sound View vs the Town. And set in motion a number of legal challenges.  There must be a way to find common ground and make this work for all in Old Lyme.”

Letter to the Editor: Sound View Sewers? Town Funding Not Justified, But Consider Other Alternatives

To the Editor:

A group of Sound View property owners are voicing strong opinions regarding the funding for the proposed sewer system for Sound View, specifically why it is not considered a public works project to be funded by all Old Lyme taxpayers rather than just Sound View property owners.

In my opinion the distinction is simple. The Old Lyme taxpayers receive no benefit from the sewers for Sound View properties and have no right to access or use those private properties. Only the Sound View owners benefit and can use their properties so only they must pay for the improvement.

I think that the Sound View folks should aim their efforts in the way Merv Roberts has suggested for decades. Pressure DEEP to approve alternative on site septic systems being used in other states instead of installing sewers. Only properties tested and found to be in need of new systems would have to install them and the cost would likely be substantially less that the proposed sewer assessments and maintenance costs. The technology is available and only the “empire builders” at DEEP are refusing to consider alternatives to sewers. They mandate sewers with little or no empirical data and testing.

I’m sure that other property owners, such as those in Hawk’s Nest and elsewhere (Rogers Lake?) would gladly join the effort with Sound View to insist upon proper testing and the use of alternative septic systems.

Sincerely,

Steven A. Ross,
Old Lyme.

Griswold Gathers Over 200 Signatures on Petition to Run as Republican First Selectman in November, State Requires 84

Former Old Lyme First Selectman Tim Griswold

Old Lyme Republican Registrar Cathy Carter

OLD LYME — Former Old Lyme First Selectman Timothy C. Griswold has collected more than 200 signatures on petitions requesting his name be added to the ballot in September as the Republican candidate for First Selectman. Griswold gave the number to LymeLine in an email conversation Sunday and added that there are more petitions out in the community, which he has not picked up yet.

He said he plans to give all the petitions to the Old Lyme Republican Registrar Cathy Carter this afternoon.  She told LymeLine on Friday by phone that once she has received the petitions, she must review each signature to verify it, checking that the person is a legitimate member of the Republican party.

To demonstrate what sometimes happens when people believe they are registered Republicans but, in fact, turn out not to be, Carter gave the example of someone who may have moved out of Old Lyme, then returned, but forgot to re-register their name with the party.

Carter told LymeLine she must submit the petitions and verified signatures to the state by Wednesday, Aug. 7. According to the state’s rules, Griswold needs signatures from five percent of the approximately 1680 registered Republicans in Old Lyme, so the minimum number of signatures required is around 84.

Carter added that a Republican Primary would not be required in September since the Republicans did not endorse anyone for First Selectman in the slate that they have already submitted.  Chris Kerr was endorsed for a second term as Selectman by the Republicans and Griswold has indicated he will campaign with Kerr if he is successful in his efforts to be on the ballot.

A Clarification on the Sewer Payment Issue

Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder

We have received numerous inquiries this morning regarding who is responsible for paying what in regard to the sewers.

To clarify the situation in advance of tonight’s meeting, we followed up with First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder, who said categorically, “The Town [of Old Lyme] has to borrow the money, but the repayment will be based on revenues from the project … [which will be] paid by the users.”  She noted, however, that “There is always the chance that someone is going to challenge the amount charged to them.”

Asked whether the mill rate for the residents of Old Lyme would be increased to fund the loan, Reemsnyder responded, “The bonding should not impact the mill rate.”

She added that a vote is planned tomorrow morning at an Old Lyme Board of Selectmen Special Meeting to set the date of Aug. 5 for a Special Town Meeting at which the referendum will be officially called for Aug. 13.

Opinion: If You Do One Thing Today, Visit Old Lyme Town Hall to Give Your Thoughts on the Halls Rd. Project

This file photo shows Halls Road today. How do YOU want it to look in five or 10 years? Go and give your thoughts today!

Today the Old Lyme Board of Selectmen (BOS) and the Halls Road Improvement Committee (HRIC) are hosting an Open House at Old Lyme’s Memorial Town Hall from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  They really do want to hear from the residents of Old Lyme what their current thinking and opinions are regarding the future of Halls Rd.  Or maybe you just want to ask questions about how we have reached the point where we are now and find out the tentative ideas the committee has already discussed.  Or perhaps you want to vent about the project because you don’t think it’s necessary at all.

We would urge two things:  first, take a minute to read Mark Terwilliger’s insightful op-ed on why, in his opinion, things have to change at Halls Rd.  He explains in simple terms why (again, in his opinion) sticking with the status quo is not an option, making the point clearly and succinctly that the world has changed since the 1950s when the Halls Rd. strip-mall was built.  He argues — and we agree — that if we fail to plan for the future in light of these changes, then change will happen anyway, but in an uncontrolled fashion and not necessarily in the best interests of the town’s residents.

The second thing we would ask is simply that you go to the Open House — whatever your opinions are about the project.  If you don’t go and share your thoughts, how can you then complain when a proposal is finally made?  It’s like that old adage, “You can’t win it, if you’re not in it” — the HRIC has deliberately made this Open House a non-threatening, informal environment so that people are comfortable speaking their minds to committee members.

We’ve heard plenty of comments both on and off the record about the HRIC and the BOS supposedly acting in isolation on the project and taking unilateral decisions.  This Open House is designed to put those rumors to rest and represents a great opportunity to give your input to the future of our town.

Don’t miss it … carpe diem!

Bob Doyen Named Old Lyme’s 2018 ‘Citizen of the Year’

Old Lyme’s 2018 Citizen of the Year Robert ‘Bob’ Doyen stands proudly between his wife Barbara ‘Bobbi’ Doyen and Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder. Photos by MJ Nosal.

After several previous tries, the Old Lyme Board of Selectmen was finally able to name their choice for the 2018 Citizen of the Year at Monday evening’s Annual Town Meeting. First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder made the announcement by reading from a proclamation drawn up in honor of Robert ‘Bob’ Doyen that began with this question, “What does our 2018 Citizen of the Year have in common with Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Susan Saint James, and Walt Disney’s Black Beauty?”

The unpredicted answer was, “These celebrities came to Old Lyme for the Special Olympics in 1994 – the same year that Bob Doyen was first appointed to the Harbor Management Commission.”

Old Lyme First Selectwoman Bonnie Reemsnyder reads the proclamation announcing Robert ‘Bob’ Doyen, standing to her left, as Old Lyme’s 2018 Citizen of the Year.

Doyen has been a member of Old Lyme’s Harbor Management Commission for 25 years, serving as both its Treasurer and Vice Chair. As the proclamation read by Reemsnyder notes, “His appointment to Harbor Management was a perfect fit. As Bob explains on his realtor website, “having grown up on Fishers Island, the move to areas along the Connecticut shoreline and the Connecticut River was a natural one. The River and Sound have a tremendous amount to offer, be it fishing, boating or beaches. You couldn’t ask for a better place to live.””

The other organization to which Doyen has given exemplary service is the Old Lyme Volunteer Fire Department, which he joined in 1988 and where he has held the offices of Lieutenant and Purchasing Agent for the department. The proclamation states, “An active Apparatus driver, Marine operator and Pump operator, he assists in training new Apparatus drivers and Marine operators.”

Bob Doyen, the 2018 Old Lyme Citizen of the Year, stand with some of his fellow Old Lyme Fire Department members after the honor was announced.

Still reading from the proclamation, Reemsnyder continued, “Doyen’s 30+ years of service have earned him a reputation in the Fire Department for his willingness to pitch in whenever he is needed. He has been a member of the Old Lyme Volunteer Fire Department’s Apparatus Committee throughout his tenure with the department. That committee is responsible for developing the specifications for new apparatus for the department.”

Reemanyder concluded, “We thank Bob Doyen for his lengthy service to our community as we proudly name him an Old Lyme celebrity —  our 2018 Citizen of the Year.”

Around 50 people turned out for last night’s Old Lyme Annual Budget Meeting and subsequently approved all the items on the agenda that went to a vote.

These included the adoption of the Town Budget for the fiscal year July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020, and the setting of the mill rate at 22.41.

Associated with this, authorization was also given for the First Selectwoman and/or the Town Attorney

  • to negotiate and consummate a modification to the easement covering these lands, in order to permit the Town the legal right to construct and maintain vehicle parking areas on the said lands and promote the public use and enjoyment of the open space lands.
  • to execute and sign, on behalf of the Town, such contracts, deeds and other instruments as are reasonably necessary to carry out this purchase and easement modification.

Three appropriations were also passed as follows:

  • $73,000 to the Health Insurance Account for health insurance costs associated with new memberships and changes in status.
  • $16,000 to the PW Project Contractors Account for emergency repairs to Grassy Hill Road Bridge.
