Stratford and Bridgeport Want to Sell Beach to the Feds

Bridgeport and Stratford are negotiating to sell a fantastic strip of beach to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which will incorporate it into the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge. Much of the beach, which has nesting piping plovers, has been inaccessible since a bridge was destroyed in the mid-1990s, and part of the beach has abandoned cottages on it. The feds will restore public access to a level appropriate for a national wildlife refuge and remove the cottages. Stratford seems close to a deal and Bridgeport is still negotiating. Seems like good news on a dank winter morning. The Connecticut Post reports, here.
