Community Preservation Plan 2014
Community Preservation yearly puts out a report on the projects it has been working on and simultaneously encourages the community to suggest new projects where the committee should place its focus.

If you would like to read the 2014 report it is available now. Although the deadline has passed for proposal applications feel free to browse those that we received over on the Community Preservation Committee page. Thank you!

Town Field Gazebo
The Park Commission, in conjunction with the Town Building Inspector, has closed the Smith Social Pavilion (i.e. the Gazebo) on Town Field due to safety concerns. The Pavilion will not be re-opened until it has been rebuilt or repaired.  Please be mindful if your children are playing in the area and ensure they do not attempt to climb in, on, or around the Pavilion. The Park Commission is investigating options to rebuild or repair the Pavilion in the Spring of 2015. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep all of Groton's parks clean, safe and accessible.

If you are interested in assisting with the Pavilion project please email parks@townofgroton.org. The Park Commissioners appreciate and rely upon the generosity and support of local businesses, use-groups and many individual residents.
