Glastonbury Looking to Purchase Geary Property Along Connecticut River

The town is looking to spend $20,293 to extend its holdings along the Connecticut River.


The town is looking to purchase an 11-acre parcel of land in South Glastonbury that would add to its existing holdings along the Connecticut River.

In a continuation of the town’s policy of acquiring riverfront property, Glastonbury is hoping to acquire the 11-acre Geary parcel, located to the west of Stockade Road and bordered by the Tryon Farm development to the southeast and town-owed open space to the north.

Under the proposed deal, the town would own 9 acres of the property, and obtain a 99-year-lease from the Geary family for 2 acres used for agriculture.

The town is hoping to use $20,293 from its land acquisition account to purchase the property from the Geary family.

A public hearing on the proposed purchase will take place at 8 p.m. on Jan. 22 in the town council chambers of town hall.
