Provide Fort Trumbull home for Coast Guard museum, Eagle
Years ago, the non-profit Yale Urban Design Group prepared a detailed plan for the redevelopment of Fort Trumbull, which included a home for the proposed Coast Guard Museum. Their work and publication did not receive attention, perhaps because a "player" said that the Eagle could not be docked there because "there is not enough water." Now we have seen historic and current photos which show her docked at Fort Trumbull.
Fortunately, The Day has an investigative reporter who documents the slipping away of millions allocated to the museum (which, Yale showed, would have an income stream for New London).
