Old Greenwich Association Annual Meeting Scheduled for October 14, 2015

On Wednesday, October 14th, Old Greenwich residents will have the opportunity to learn more about some big developments happening in their town at the Old Greenwich Association Annual Meeting.

“Old Greenwich has been called a ‘front-porch kind of place,’ something that we all take tremendous pride in,” said David Rafferty, president of the Old Greenwich Association. “Old Greenwich works best when all the residents are well-informed and committed to preserving our small-town feel. That’s what this years meeting is all about.”

After the business meeting and election of officers, the first presentation of the evening will focus on the recently completed Eastern Greenwich Neighborhood Plan. Over the past year, many residents and town officials participated in the creation of this plan, sharing ideas and concerns. Now, as the final document is ready to be unveiled, Ms. Katie DeLuca, Greenwich’s Director of Planning & Zoning will be on hand to discuss how action items can move from planning to implementation.

The second presentation will be an update from town engineers and the Department of Transportation on the Sound Beach Avenue/Tomac Avenue train bridge project. “This project is easily misunderstood,” says Rafferty. “Yes, it’s going to be inconvenient, but the driving and parking challenges will be minimal and the finished result will be better for everybody.”

Phase One is currently underway and everybody wants to know how that’s going, what comes next and so on. The Annual Meeting will be a good time for residents to ask questions and get some answers firsthand.

The Old Greenwich Association annual meeting will be held at First Congregational Church, 108 Sound Beach Avenue, starting with coffee and conversation at 7:00 p.m. The business meeting and presentations will kick off at 7:30 p.m. All are invited to attend and admission is free.
