Here are a few happenings around town in the coming weeks/months that town folks should know about. There is certainly more going on, but these are a few that could lead to a few questions.
1) Opening of Gorham's Pond Tide Gates
The Gorham’s Pond Tide Gates flushing and cleaning, Spring 2022 Schedule is:
- Opened on Monday, March 14, 2022; and,
- Closed on Monday, March 21, 2022.
Tide gates cannot be operated following extensive rain events or a series of very high tides because of the large volume of water flowing over the dam. The opening or closing of gates may be delayed dependent on weather.
2) Frontier Upgrades in Darien, Finally Competition for Optimum!!
High-speed internet is critical to everyone. Frontier is working in Darien to provide basic internet service of 500 over 500 megabytes per second- that compares to the current 5 over 90! Expect ruck traffic from March through May. They are targeting 5300 homes and small businesses in town for phase 1.
3) Train Stations and Parking
As people from Darien leave their home offices and start commuting again, please be careful cutting through the train station parking lots. A nasty habit has formed where people speed through the Noroton Heights train station parking lot expecting it to be empty. It's not, so please slow down before you kill someone.
As more news is available, I'll post it...Spring is right around the corner and COVID is coming to an end...so hopefully we'll be able to have big events again in Town.
