Groton Long Point (GLP) is a private subdivision of the town of Groton on the Long Island Sound in Connecticut that is primarily used by families as a summer resort.
Summer in Groton Long Point runs from mid-June to early September. The population of the town rises during the summer months, as nearly every property is either occupied by its owners or rented to summer tenants. The Groton Long Point Yacht Club is a cross between a traditional yacht club and a summer camp, as it runs many classes for children. These include swimming, sailing, sports, and tennis lessons. The Yacht Club also organizes evening events such as dances, movies, and scavenger hunts for children; events are also organized for adults and families, including concerts, dances, and fireworks.
The area is administered by the Groton Long Point Association (GLPA), which was founded by an act of the Connecticut Legislature in 1921. The act enabled seasonal residents to tax and issue bonds to provide services independent of the town of Groton; typically, such municipal corporations provided services that the larger township could not or would not provide. The corporation was not described as a borough in the law forming it, but it has the same governmental powers as a borough. Today, such a special taxing district can be formed by Connecticut residents on their own without special acts of the Legislature. The area is treated by the U.S. Census Bureau as a borough, although it is not formally incorporated as such.- Wikipedia
