Seymour officials held an informational meeting on the town’s “fish bypass project,” the New Haven Register reports.

Construction on the $2.5 million project could start in January. The project is being paid for by a federal grant.

The Register story finally gives a glimpse of why the project matters — in addition to allowing the official state fish “to make a grand return to the Naugatuck River to spawn,” the project includes a public park next to the Naugatuck River at the Tingue Mill Dam across from Wakeley Street.

Taking advantage of the Naugatuck River’s natural beauty was among the suggestions of a recently completed action plan for downtown Seymour.

No disrespect for the fish, but now it’s time to give it a name other than “fish bypass.”

The Valley Indy couldn’t attend Thursday night’s information meeting due to commitments in Ansonia and Derby, but private citizen Frank Loda captured the meeting on video.

Ninety minutes of the presentation is posted below. A second, 14-minute video can be seen here.
