All Niantic Bay boardwalk benches sold

Published June 27. 2014 7:14PM   Updated June 27. 2014 7:16PM

The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation Inc. has announced that applications for all of the 50 available benches for the western half of the Niantic Bay Boardwalk have all been received, the foundation's Carol Marelli said.

The benches are being ordered and assembled in anticipation of the boardwalk’s construction, slated to begin within the next couple of weeks and finish in early 2015. At that time, the benches will be placed on the boardwalk. 

A waiting list will be kept in the event benches can be offered again. The foundation is also offering sponsorships of memorial plaques for the boardwalk. Applications are available on the foundation’s web site (publictrustfoundation.org), or by calling Bill Rinoski at (860) 739-6667. The foundation is exploring other ideas for future projects.
