Welcome to the Town of Groton, Connecticut

Conservation Commission publishes first updated Open Space Conservation Plan in 30 years

The Open Space Conservation Plan for the Town of Groton stems from a critical need to identify natural, cultural and available open space resources that should be conserved as protected open space, to identify methods to achieve balanced conservation objectives, and outline the stewardship of protected parcels.  It is increasingly important to make land use decisions that protect sensitive resources and habitats, encourage citizen support and participation in these decisions, and provide guidance to land developers and development consultants to work with the Town to achieve common open space objectives.
