Contact Legislators


Share Your Thoughts and Concerns

As part of our ongoing mission, we encourage the residents of Lyme to participate in our government – at the local, state and federal levels.

At the Town level, we are working to:

  • Enhance communications about important decisions that come before the Town – to explain how those decisions might affect our shared way of life and how residents can take advantage of available opportunities to voice their concerns or support.
  • Encourage residents to attend Town meetings and participate in discussions that affect our Town; understand Town laws and regulations; and serve on Town boards, commissions and committees.
  • Ensure important Town decisions include a thorough explanation of applicable regulations and residents’ concerns.
