DERBY — Two signs detailing the history and recreational benefits of the Naugatuck and Housatonic rivers were installed along the Greenway Wednesday.
Representatives of the Cornwall Bridge-based Housatonic Valley Association, Sikorsky Aircraft and other officials joined Mayor Anthony Staffieri and Economic Development Director Sheila O’Malley at the entrance to O’Sullivan’s Island to mark the installation.
O’Sullivan’s Island, which is actually a 10-acre peninsula, is at the confluence of the two rivers. It is a Brownfields site that was cleaned up by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and now offers recreational opportunities to residents.
