While the Connecticut River Gateway Commission and the eight towns in the Zone are working to preserve the beauty and health of the river valley, your role as a homeowner, builder, architect, arborist, landscaper, realtor or some who enjoys time on and along the river is especially important.
Here are some ways you can help.
An Exception for a Landmark Building
The Goodspeed Opera House has prominently stood along the Connecticut River since the 1870’s. Now a noted theater, Goodspeed Musicals has sent 19 productions to Broadway and won two Tony awards. In recognition of the historic building and the surrounding village’s scenic quality, the CT River Gateway Commission and the East Haddam Planning & Zoning Commission collaboratively collaboratively developed unique zoning standards that included an exception for the landmark theater’s height.
