Madison, CT, to Study After-Hours Beach Traffic

The New Haven Register reports that the Madison, Connecticut, Beach and Recreation Commission will launch a summer monitoring program to get a better idea of the people who are visiting the beaches at night.

According to the article, several residents want to extend the beach hours and continue charging an entrance fee into the night. During the study, a guard will remain at the gate 3 hours past the usual closing time of 5:00 p.m., but the commission will still charge an entrance fee only until 5:00.

According to the article, Diana Lynch, owner of Splash at the Surf Club, claims that the residents behind the program are the same people who don’t want out-of-towners at the beaches at all.
