Groton Beautification Committee spruces up Sutton Park
The Groton Beautification Committee recently unveiled a new Town of Groton sign and perennial planting at Sutton Park, the latest project for the group. The committee, whose mission is “to enhance the appearance of our community through the addition of art and landscape projects that foster economic growth in Groton,” is focusing on the gateways in town.
Other areas targeted will be Groton Town Hall, the Avery Memorial intersection at Poquonnock Road and Long Hill Road and the intersection of Route 117 and Fort Hill Road. Longer term projects similar to Sutton Park’s are planned in the future.
The committee was formed by the Town Council to enhance Groton’s landscape and work with local businesses.
