Designs for Stonington Town Dock pier to be presented Aug. 29
Stonington — The town will present possible designs to protect the south pier of the Town Dock at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, at the La Grua Center in the borough.
According to the announcement for the event, “community leaders initiated a project to evaluate the condition of the South Pier and develop plans to ensure that this asset is in good repair for the future.”
The pier is leased by the Southern New England Fisherman’s & Lobstermen’s Association, who dock their boats there and use its facilities.
Engineers from Stantec, a international firm with 400 offices across the world, will share data collected during the initial phases of the project, as well as design approaches to protect the dock. There also will be an opportunity for residents to share their thoughts about the project.
