Comments have been submitted to the state Department of Energy and Environtmantal Protection on proposed Squantz Cove state boat launch improvements on Candlewood Lake in New Fairfield.  One was overcrowding concerns by increasing parking by 25 spaces through parking lot improvements.  The listed parking capacity is 100 cars with trailers, but due to the gravel parking lot design with undesignated spaces, the facility did not always reach capacity and the listing was reduced to 75 spaces.  With the planned improvements, DEEP plans to return to a 100 space limit, with more controlled and improved traffic flow.  The renovated launch will be displacing many picnickers who may have used a portion of the park.
