About the FRCC

The Farmington River Coordinating Committee is integral to the implementation of the Upper Farmington River Management Plan. The Committee is comprised of appointed representatives from the five riverfront towns, state of Connecticut, MDC, NPS, FRWA, and FRAA. Monthly meetings are typically held at the Committee's office at Squire's Tavern; just inside Peoples State Forest in Pleasant Valley.
