This week at our Chamber of Commerce Government and Community Affairs Program series, we met with Town of Greenwich Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Director Patricia Sesto.
Since Pat started as the Town of Greenwich, Inland Wetlands & Watercourses Director, she has implemented many welcome changes. She highlighted that her goal is to provide customer service while protecting and improving the environment. Pat shared with us the many benefits of conserving our wetlands and watercourses and her consistent and consultative approach to current regulations.
Three takeaways from our meeting with Pat:
• Anything within 100 feet from a wetland or watercourse is now a regulated and protected area
• Save time and money and stop by or call Wetlands & Watercourses BEFORE you develop your plans
• Apply to Wetlands and Watercourses before applying to Planning and Zoning to ensure enough time for approvals
