Gov. Lamont terminates purchase agreement of land in Griswold proposed for CSP gun range


It appears that a Connecticut State Police gun range will not be coming to Griswold.

On Monday, Governor Ned Lamont announced that the Department of Administrative Services terminated a purchase and sale agreement for a 113-acre piece of land.

That land was a proposed site for the range.

“We will no longer be placing the state gun range in Griswold,” Governor Lamont said. “The state will do a complete analysis of the project and search for viable alternate locations, while ensuring the overall project is cost-efficient and produces the best results for the needs of the State Police.”

Some Griswold residents had been fighting against the proposed range.
