Sen. Duff secures state grants for Seaport Association, Lockwood Matthews

State Senator Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today welcomed news that state grants for both the Norwalk Seaport Association and the Lockwood Matthews Mansion have places on the State Bond Commission’s next agenda. ...
.... The Norwalk Seaport Association is slated to receive $250,000 for infrastructure improvements to the Sheffield Island Lighthouse, which was activated in 1868 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The funds will help cover the costs of a new dock, repairs to the bulkheads, a new pavilion, functioning restroom facilities, running water and electricity—improvements that will help increase public access to the lighthouse.

“We are very excited about receiving this funding as it will allow us to increase public access and develop programming on Sheffield Island,” said Seaport Association Executive Director Susan Snider. “We are very grateful to Senator Bob Duff for working so hard on our behalf.”
