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 Zoning and Building Official and a full-time Office Manager.
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.
The water at high tide today did reach the boardwalk wall at Main Beach and could increase over the next few days. Items left on the beaches are at risk of being washed out to sea. Residents may want to remove all items.
The GLPA Board of Directors has appointed David Knowles to be the next Chief of the Groton Long Point Police Department, effective August 27, 2018.
