Groton - The state plans to help local municipalities buy land around the Naval Submarine Base so development will not encroach on the base’s operations.

State Sen. Andrew Maynard, D-Stonington, and State Reps. Tom Reynolds, D-Ledyard, and Elissa Wright, D-Groton, said the purpose of the state's investment, in conjunction with the towns of Groton and Ledyard, is to enhance the military value of the base so that it will not be closed in a future round of base closings.

"We want to ensure that the sub base remains here in Groton for a long time to come and that means doing all we can to enhance the quality of the base and its value to the military," Maynard said in a statement. "At present, the base is boxed in on all sides. This added land would provide a buffer between the base facilities and neighboring properties, which is an important part of the scoring matrix used by the military to assess bases and make closure decisions."
