ct property lines | running bamboo | property owners | News

However, most are unaware of how quickly and extensively bamboo can spread, and hence, the new liabilities property owners assume when planting. The particular type of bamboo under scruitiny is known to regulators as "running bamboo."

GHA Lends a Helping Hand to the Rebuilding of a Milford Synagogue

News | land surveying

In October of last year an electrical problem sparked a blaze at the Hebrew Congregation of Woodmont, located in Milford, that caused extensive damage to the temple. "On July 21, 1995, the synagogue was officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service. The building was nominated for this designation because of its Colonial revival design, the fact that it hasn't been modified, and also because it was used for most of its life as a seasonal temple."  The historical building, prayer books, shalls, and other various items dating back to 1926 were all destroyed in this devastasting fire. Immediately following the cleanup process, the goal of rebuilding the Temple in the same location was created and the overwhelming support from neighbors, organizations, and other synagogues poured in to help out in anyway possible.  In the emotional process of rebuilding the temple, there was an issue with the last survey performed on the property.
