DEEP Coastal Property Owner’s Guide
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Land and Water Resources Division has created a new Coastal Property Owner’s Guide. It can be found on the DEEP website.
The goal of the Coastal Property Owner’s Guide is to help familiarize current and potential property owners, real estate agents, attorneys, builders, and anyone involved in selling or buying coastal properties, with coastal structures and regulations.
DEEP has also prepared a ADA Coastal Property Owners Infographic and Coastal Property Owner Tri-fold Brochure for public consumption of this topic.
