In the Works – May 2019

The Connecticut Greenways Council recently commended eight individuals, and two non-profit organizations that have made significant contributions to the promotion, development and enhancement of Greenways – linear open space in Connecticut – and designated a new State Greenway at a ceremony held at Stratton Brook State Park in Simsbury, CT.

Susan Whalen, Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) said, “Our State Designated Greenways provide great opportunities to enjoy recreation, commute to work, exercise or shop from a bicycle, or simply spend time with family and friends on a beautiful day.  The greenway being recognized today, along with our 75 existing designated greenways, provide these opportunities to local residents and visitors alike while boosting the economy throughout Connecticut.  Today’s ceremony also recognizes a dedicated group of volunteers whose passion for greenways continues to improve the quality of life in our State.”
