What Happens Next?

Connecticut General Statutes Section 4b-47 requires public notice of most proposed transfers of state-owned lands out of state ownership.
The first step in the process -- mandatory public notice -- has occurred. After a 30-day public review and comment period, the next step will be one of the following:
  • If no public comments are received, the property may be transferred with no further public notice.

  • If public comments are received, the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) will respond to those comments.  The comments and responses will be published in the Environmental Monitor. The property then may be transferred after 15 days with no further public notice.

  • The Commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection may elect to conduct a further review of the property and submit to OPM a report with draft recommendations for preserving all or part of the property.The report and draft recommendations would be published in the Environmental Monitor with a 30-day public comment period.
