DEEP to Hold Public Information Meeting March 4th Regarding Proposed Improvements to Candlewood Lake State Boat Launch

Agency Sharing Draft Plans for Improvements to Candlewood Lake State Boat Launch in Squantz Cove on Candlewood Lake

 

Despite the cold winter days, the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) Boating Division is working to improve the Candlewood Lake State Boat Launch in Squantz Cove on Candlewood Lake in New Fairfield through a comprehensive redesign.

Without increasing capacity at the boat launch, DEEP is working to enhance the boater’s experience at the facility with Americans with Disability Act (ADA) improvements, a revised traffic pattern, new courtesy docks, addition of a toilet building and lighting, and widening of the ramp to promote the safe and efficient launching and retrieval of vessels.

DEEP will be sharing the draft plans on Thursday, March 4 at 7 p.m. in a virtual public information meeting. Go here for meeting registration details.

Public comments may be submitted following the presentation by email until March 18, 2021. Comments should be submitted to mike.payton@ct.gov.
