August 27, 2104 - The Darien Republican Town Committee is seeking residents to serve on the Environmental Protection Commission. The EPC consists of seven Darien residents whose responsibility it is to review any activity in or abutting wetlands or watercourses. This includes building activity, paving, installation of pools, as well as planting or removal of trees or other vegetation. In addition, the commission’s mandate is to protect, preserve and maintain the natural resources of Darien.

If you are interested learning more about joining the Environmental Protection Commission, please contact either of the RTC recruitment chairs. Malcolm Hall can be reached at 203-918-4549 and Charlie Koons can be reached at 917-545-4523.

July 23, 2014 - The Darien Republican Town Committee is seeking candidates to serve on the town’s Park and Recreation Commission. The mission of the Darien Parks and Recreation Department is to nurture active and passive recreational activities within existing town parklands; to maintain clean and attractive facilities, and to adjust and expand both the recreational programs and parklands to meet the recreational requirements of all residents in a cost effective manner.

The commission has a number of important upcoming projects to review where the informed judgment of its commissioners will be critical. A few of these projects include considering the best use of the recently acquired Short Lane property, developing a master plan for Pear Tree Point Beach, expansion of the Darien Boat Club, and coordination with the Advisory Commission on Coastal Waters on matters of mutual interest.

Those interested learning more about joining the Parks & Recreation Commission should contact either RTC recruitment chairmen, Malcolm Hall at 203-918-4549 or Charlie Koons at 917-545-4523.
