DEEP Holding Public Meeting on Future of Sunrise State Park
 
Discussion will also focus on recent improvements there
 
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) will hold a community meeting on Wednesday September 25 to update residents on improvements to Sunrise State Park, Moodus. 
 
The meeting begins at 7:00 pm at Nathan Hale-Ray High School Auditorium, 15 School Drive, Moodus. 
 
DEEP staff, along with State Senator Art Linares, State Representative Melissa Ziobron, and First Selectman Mark Walter are seeking feedback from the community on what local residents would like see happen at Sunrise State Park. Alternatives being considered include preserving the property in its natural state for nature trails and passive recreation, or issuing a Request for Proposals to see what concepts private entities offer for the future use of the park.
 
In recent months, DEEP has taken steps to clear the site by removing old buildings and debris.
