Community Outreach

Throughout this process, Pfizer has demonstrated their commitment to an inclusive stakeholder engagement program. Since acquiring Pharmacia & Upjohn Company LLC and the property through its acquisition of Pharmacia Corporation in 2003, Pfizer has consistently engaged federal, state and local stakeholders.

North Haven Citizens' Advisory Panel

In 1995, the North Haven First Selectman established the Citizens' Advisory Panel (CAP) as a conduit to the community for information regarding the environmental investigation and remediation of the Upjohn property. Input and feedback obtained from the CAP was instrumental in the corrective measures process and helped shape the approved remedy and future vision for the property. The CAP, representing a broad cross-section of the community, has maintained consistent membership through multiple town administrations in order to provide Pfizer, USEPA, CTDEEP and in particular, the local community, with solid input and feedback based on the concerns of the stakeholders.

Stakeholder Engagement

A broad stakeholder engagement process was implemented throughout the site investigation, reuse planning and corrective measures processes. Pfizer and its consultants worked with community representatives and environmental groups to establish key objectives for the remediation and future use of the property. These groups included the Quinnipiac River Watershed Association (QRWA), North Haven Land Trust, Regional Growth Partnership, North Haven Trail Association, and numerous town boards and commissions.

Local Buying Commitment

Pfizer and its consultants are committed to returning benefit to the community. Throughout the corrective measures implementation process contractors and consultants purchased from local vendors and suppliers whenever possible.

Continued Engagement

Pfizer and its team will continue to engage with the greater North Haven community as they complete the final administrative filings for this project and continue maintenance and operations under its Stewardship Permit.
