The Design Review Process
Old Saybrook is well-known as a community with a high quality-of-life, small and cohesive neighborhoods, a vibrant downtown and waterfront -- all on the spectacular setting of Long Island Sound and the mouth of the Connecticut River. This deserving reputation is due in part to the town's small size, entrepreneurial spirit, civic-minded citizens and active government.
One of the many factors that makes Old Saybrook such a great place to live, work and visit is the community's attention to detail and respect for its natural, architectural and cultural heritage. Old Saybrook's Design Review process strives to protect and enhance the town's unique qualities and strong "sense of place" by carrying out economic development under design objectives.
