Three towns consider their compatibility with the Stones Ranch Military Reservation

Lyme — If residential developments grow too close to the Stones Ranch Military Reservation in the future, the noise, light or dust from the military site could bother the nearby residents. 

At the same time, the proximity of those new developments to the military site could also restrict the expanses of training space used by the Connecticut Army National Guard.

These are among the potential scenarios East Lyme, Lyme and Old Lyme and the Army are seeking to prevent by conducting a 15-month study on the compatibility of land near the approximately 2,000-acre military installation located in the three towns. The Joint Land Use Study will also look at Camp Niantic in East Lyme.

The Army had nominated Stones Ranch for a joint land use study in 2011 "due to concerns about residential development along all four boundaries," according to the Department of Defense website.
