Mariner's Way
Temp_MW_Blue Linear.jpg

The Mariner's Way Plan resulted from the desire to revitalize and redevelop the Route 1 East corridor between Town Center and Ferry Point in Old Saybrook.  A Task Force of residents convened in 2012 studied the area and formulated the Mariner's Way Plan.  In 2014, the Planning Commission adopted the Mariner's Way Plan as a section of the Town's Plan of Conservation & Development.

The Mariner's Way Plan provided the impetus for a long-term revitalization effort for what is now known as
Mariner's Way.  

Summary of revitalization efforts to date:

Old Saybrook received a Brownfields Area-Wide Revitalization (BAR) Grant from the CT Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to conduct a study and develop an economic development revitalization plan for Mariner's Way.  The Mariner's Way Discovery + Action Plan (MW-DAP) project began in September 2016 and concluded in December 2017.  While the study concluded, MW-DAP is just the beginning.

Old Saybrook received a Brownfields Assessment Grant from the CT Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to conduct a study of the existance and extent of environmental contamination on nine former industrial properties centrally located along Mariner's Way.  The assessment began in 2015 and concluded in October 2017.
