After consulting with the New Haven office of Save the Sound and the Land Trust of West Haven Inc., the city launched the first of a three-phase project Oct. 6 to restore the beachfront parcels along the boardwalk that were previously overrun by invasive plant species.
The project will unfold over the next two years in the following phases:
— Remove invasive plants.
— Perform a site analysis and recommend restoration alternatives.
— Choose a restoration design and implement it.
The project’s ultimate goal is to showcase the best practices of coastal resilience in a way that is educational and enjoyable while enhancing West Haven’s regional reputation.
