Letter: Seasonal, Open Air Skating Rink in New Canaan

[Editor’s Note: The following letter was sent March 6 to New Canaanite.]

We are very encouraged by the increasing pace of interest, questions, and feedback we’ve been gathering with regard to the proposed ice rink in our town. While at this time our planning is not advanced enough to answer any and all questions, we feel that that it is time to address a number of areas of interest to the community by sharing our progress in researching the major elements involved in making this rink a reality. Background and Basics

What kind of ice skating rink are we proposing? An open air ice skating rink primarily for our community’s recreational use (versus primarily for organized sports). with lots of open skate time for people of all ages – kids, families, seniors, etc.
