Groton seeks public input on proposed site for submarine monument
Groton — The town will be taking public comment Tuesday evening on a resolution regarding a proposed site for the placement of the sail and rudder from the former USS Groton.
The special meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Community Room 1 of the Town Hall Annex, 134 Groton Long Point Road.
The “sail” is the tower-like portion that protrudes from the hull at the center of a submarine. The USS Groton (SSN-694), a Los Angeles-class attack sub, was the third Navy ship named for Groton. Built at Electric Boat, it was launched in October 1976, commissioned in July 1978 and decommissioned in November 1997.
