Restoration & Preservation

The first phase of the restoration will be critical structural reinforcements to protect the structure from damage due to a storm event. The GLLPS team has extensive maritime experience, as well as relationships with and access to necessary marine and maritime services.

We now have full access to the property, and are currently working with experts on the assessment and recommendations phase for both near-term and longer-term restoration efforts.

Preservation

GLLPS' ultimate focus will be on preserving Greens Ledge Lighthouse as a historic maritime landmark for generations to come, in accordance with the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000.

In addition to restoring and preserving Greens Ledge as a fully operable light house with equipment maintained and operated by the U.S. Coast Guard, GLLPS' preservation goals include dedicating the property for the following uses:

  • For maritime, marine biology and environmental research and education purposes
  • To promote the preservation of Long Island Sound and regional wildlife
  • To promote environmental and sustainability best practices
  • To promote Norwalk, CT’s maritime heritage and Greens Ledge Light as a historic landmark
