A vacant piece of property near the Guilford/Madison line may be turned into a commercial marina, the New Haven Register reports. 

Yarde Realty Co. applied with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to install a commercial marina at 4 Boston Post Road, which is located in Madison but is near the Guilford line, according to reporter Sean Carlin. 

Plans call for a 45-slip commercial marina, and the project would not affect a great amount of endangered and threatened species. 

The Army Corps is reviewing the application and a public hearing could be held on the issue if residents request one.

Actually that ignorant theory is why the town has seen zero growth in anything, businesses leaving for elsewhere, residents leaving for elsewhere, and taxes climbing through the roof.

There is a railroad bridge between this location and the Sound. How much bridge clearance is there at high tide? Anybody know? I expect that only smaller boats could operate from the proposed location.

Interesting how the mudslingers don't include a last name with their rants. Pros and cons can be debated without resorting to rude comments.

Not sure what a last name has to do with economics?? A last name is not required for a fact to be a fact. And Madison losing business, losing homeowners, and losing appeal is a fact. And the cause of that being attitudes like yours is a fact. And thinking this is a good thing is indeed ignorant. Despite my username not containing my full name, address, phone number, and mother's maiden name, all of that remains to be true. If you found my comment to be so rude that you focus on that instead of topic at hand, you may not be ready for the internet.

Did you know that there used to be a 55 slip marina and restaurant at this property. It was called Cutlers Clam's. It is one of the towns oldest landings. The former Marina And Restaurant were only closed when emient domain took the property for the relocation of the RT 1 Bridge. The East River is also known as the Ancient Highway and had heavy ship traffic, even after the railroad came through, there was a drawbridge where the current fixed bridge is now. The East River and this property were a staple in this town for many generations, I hope it gets to be that good once again.
