Long Island Sound Blue Plan Becomes Law

May 27, 2021

Rep. Joseph Gresko of Stratford, our Chair of the Environment Committee, worked to pass legislation that will help protect and preserve Connecticut's natural resource gem Long Island Sound.

The Long Island Sound Blue Plan will provide conservation groups, developers, municipalities, and scientists with a comprehensive map of the all-important Long Island Sound in order to help protect it and its ecosystem for generations to come.

“Connecticut adopting this state-of-the-art spatial planning tool means our number one asset, Long Island Sound, will have its knowledge available to protect environmental and human uses,” Chair Gresko said. “It was an honor helping lead passage as thanks to the hundreds of people who created the Blue Plan and to my late friend, Terry Backer, the state’s first Soundkeeper.”
