Friends, neighbors, lovers of parks and Waterbury. The HOCC is launching a campaign that is sure to bring back memories, make you smile and feel like spring! With the approval of the Park Board and with original historic planting plans in hand, we are moving forward to restore back to its original design the Fulton Park Lilac Grove. Working with the Park Department, we aim to purchase and plant 111 lilac trees this Spring. To do that - we need 111 friends, like you, to “Love a Lilac.” So scroll on down, adopt your own lilac and set down some roots!
As our state prepares its plan to use nearly $51 million in settlement monies due from the Volkswagen lawsuit, citizen groups are calling for some of those funds to go to programs that directly impact air quality in urban communities of color.

Please note: this lecture is rescheduled from September 2016.
