Thank you for your interest in the proposed development of the Mystic Oral School/Mystic Education Center. We are making progress on spreading the word about the negative impacts that a mega-development would have on not only the adjoining neighbors but the Mystic area and the entirety of the Town of Groton. We need help to continue to promote understanding of this proposal and to sustain the effort to get all the facts out related to the current development proposal concerning the town, the state and the developer .

We are engaging the town and the state with freedom of information (FOI) submittals individually and through Attorney Moukawsher. We have paid the attorney retainer, but as the process moves forward, we will need to compensate the attorney for his time, as his work gets more detailed. With Respler identifying that he is selling his business to Blue Lotus Group and that they will be taking over the mediation, it is more important than ever that MOSA stay engaged in what is going on and challenging the sale and switch to Blue Lotus Group. Our attorney has been requested to research the situation and provide MOSA and the town his legal opinion.  

We hope that you can help out with the attorney expenses and the recurring website fees. We have a special checking account to handle any money you can contribute. Please consider a contribution to help ensure we are heard. $25, $50, $100, $250. You know best what you would like to do to help. There is a PayPal button on this page for donations. If you prefer, you may send a check to:


Mystic Oral School Advocates c/o Penelope Miller, 56 Hancock DR, Mystic, CT 06355.


If there is any money remaining after we achieve our goals, it will be donated to a Groton based conservation or open space group.

Thank you for your support. We are stronger together – and the Town of Groton leadership has definitely heard us. We need to keep vigilant and visible to the town and state entities responsible for this mess. Please speak to your friends and neighbors and ask them to support reasonable development at the current zoning level of RU-80 at the Mystic Oral School/Mystic Education Center.
