Winter Storm Advisory.
In 1921 the Connecticut General Assembly approved the Charter incorporating The Groton Long Point Association, Inc (GLPA). All landowners on Groton Long Point are Members of the Association. The Members vote to adopt the annual budget, enact ordinances, and to elect a governing body comprised of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Clerk, and five Directors. Collectively this body is known as the Board of Directors. The Board is supported by numerous Commissions and Committees. Groton Long Point has its own Police, Fire, and Water Departments. Board Members are responsible for Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Docks, Beaches and Lagoons. The Association employs a part-time Zoning and Building Official and a full-time Office Manager.
It is the policy of the Groton Long Point Association (Association) and its Board of Directors (Board) that any form of discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin including limited English proficiency, ancestry, alienage, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, veteran status, or any other basis prohibited by state or federal law is prohibited in the use, enjoyment, and provision of services, programs, and activities by the Association or the Board. The GLPA non-discrimination policy can be found here in English and here in Spanish. If an LEP person needs assistance in communicating with the Association in a language other than English, an interpreter can be provided.
There are several other organizations that operate in Groton Long Point, that are not part of the GLPA, but involve many from the community. These include the Groton Long Point Yacht Club that provides summer programs for children and adults, events, sailing regattas, and fireworks and the Groton Long Point Women's Organization who provide service, fundraise and sponsor social events for the betterment of the GLP Community.
