Fairfield to Host Meeting on Coastal Protection

First Selectman Mike Tetreau has announced that the Town of Fairfield will host a Public Informational Meeting regarding the Riverside Drive Coastal Resiliency Planning Grant on Tuesday, July 12th at 7:00 pm in Seminar Room 295 A&B at the Board of Education Administrative Offices in Fairfield.

At the meeting, the public will hear about the progress that has been made in the design of potential coastal resiliency measures that can be implemented along the Riverside Drive Corridor to prevent flooding from future coastal storms.

Representatives from Milone and Macbroom, Inc., the firm that has been conducting the technical planning, will present information regarding work that has been completed to date and will look to solicit feedback from interested parties.

This will be the first of two meetings that will be held jointly by Milone and Macbroom, Inc. and the Town of Fairfield to solicit comments from interested individuals.

The planning project is being fully funded by a $200,000 Community Development Block Disaster Recovery Grant (CDBG-DR) that was awarded to the town by the Connecticut Department of Housing in September 2015.

The scope of work associated with the grant is primarily focused on evaluation of flood protection options such as flood walls, berms, dikes, and dune ridges that may be used to prevent flooding from Ash Creek and Long Island Sound.

Milone and Macbroom, Inc. and the Town of Fairfield hope to complete the planning and design process by December 2016.
