Hunting season to begin September 15

September 15th, 2017

Deer Bow Hunting Season Opens Friday, Sept 15

Deer hunting season opens in Connecticut September 15 with the beginning of the bow season and continues through Jan 31. The Town of Lyme and Lyme Land Trust allow licensed hunters with a granted permit to hunt on some of its forest preserves. Hunters seeking permission to hunt on Town and Land Trust property should contact the Town of Lyme Open Space Coordinator at openspace@townlyme.org. Hunting is allowed Mon-Thurs. and preserves remain open to hikers and other users during bow season.

Whenever walking in the woods during hunting season, it is always a good idea to wear bright colors (preferably orange) and to keep dogs leashed. If your dogs run free, it’s a good idea to buy them orange vests and make sure they are worn whenever the dog is out of the house.

For a list of the Town and Land Trust preserves on which hunting is permitted and other information about personal safety in Lyme forest preserves during hunting season, go to:

Revaluation Information from the Assessor’s Office

August 29th, 2017

Dear Property Owner: The State of Connecticut requires that each municipality revalue real property periodically to ensure that assessments are equitable. The Town of Lyme has retained Vision Government Solutions, Inc. to conduct the revaluation of the town for 2018. Representatives from the Appraisal department of Vision Government Solutions, Inc. will be in your area shortly to conduct the first phase of the revaluation process. Each Vision data collector will have a Vision photo identification card. Residents are encouraged to ask to view this identification prior to admitting anyone into their homes. When the Vision data collector visits your property they will verify the exterior measurementsof each building. If a person 18 years or older is available at the home to allow entry, the Vision data collector will request to inspect the interior including basement and easily accessible attic space. They will also take an exterior image of the property. At the conclusion of the inspection, the homeowner or resident will be asked to sign the data collection form only to verify that the interior inspection took place. If no one is available at the time of the visit to the property, follow up letters will be sent to owners with information on how to schedule an inspection appointment. If you have questions as to the identity of a data collector, call Troop F, Westbrook at (860) 399-2100 (non-emergency number) for further confirmation. Each data collector has personal and vehicle information registered with Troop F, Westbrook and the Assessor’s Office. If you have other questions please call the Assessor’s office at (860) 434-8092. Thank you for your cooperation. The Assessor’s Office
