The town has shown the former Mystic Education Center property 40 times since it began marketing the site, and will open proposals from developers on Feb. 15, according to an update on economic development in Groton.

The 77-acre site on Oral School Road is owned by the state, but the state and town jointly have been marketing the property. Groton issued a request for proposals on Dec. 15 and has had several showings per week, Planning and Development Director Jon Reiner said. About 40 acres of the property are suitable for development.

Town Manager John Burt said he’s excited about a dormant property potentially going back on the tax rolls. "I look forward to seeing all of the submitted proposals. I want to make sure that the public continue being able to use the green space there, and that the selected use complements the area,” he wrote in an email.
