Malloy into finally cutting the cord to a financially challenged developer who has dawdled for years on plans to reconfigure Seaside, the state-owned former sanitarium on a spectacular waterfront site in Waterford.

Armed with paintbrushes, shovels and rakes, about 500 volunteers spent much of the day hard at work along the waterway's Riverside banks. The labor joins work to complete a bike trail project and a recent state bill to establish the Santa Ana River conservancy program in the push to make the watershed a destination that community members can fully enjoy.
