Governor Lamont says State will no longer purchase Griswold property proposed for a CSP gun range
HARTFORD — Governor Ned Lamont announced Tuesday that the state no longer plans to purchase property in Griswold that was a proposed site for a Connecticut State Police gun range.
The Department of Administrative Services has terminated a purchase and sale agreement for the 113-acre piece of land in Griswold after the Governor decided not to seek bonding money for the property.
The Department delivered a letter to the property owner notifying him of the decision.
“We will no longer be placing the state gun range in Griswold,” Governor Lamont said. “The state will do a complete analysis of the project and search for viable alternate locations, while ensuring the overall project is cost-efficient and produces the best results for the needs of the State Police.”
