Fairfield Hills Authority says proposed community center doesn't fit Master Plan

During the Fairfield Hills Authority's most recent meeting, the group voted that the proposed community/senior center design does not meet the Fairfield Hills Master Plan design guidelines.  According to meeting minutes, the back of the proposed community center has large windows, while the front of the building could have columns and smaller windows to blend with the historical buildings on the campus.

 

The Authority is asking that the number of parking spaces be re-evaluated, considering
shared parking for the Municipal Center, community center, sports and other events – especially in regard to the timing of each activity.

 

The Fairfield Hills Authority is tasked with ensuring the Master Plan is adhered to. 

 

The first new structure erected on campus was the Newtown Youth Academy.  The owner was required to add $2 million to his budget to comply with the structural requirements of the campus. The second building, erected, the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance building, had to add a 2nd story to come into compliance.

 

The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing tonight on the proposed community center/senior center complex on the Fairfield Hills campus. The hearing as part of the site development plan review is set for 7:30pm at Newtown Municipal Center.

 

The Canaan House, which was a patient housing/treatment building, formerly stood on the site. all that is left are the subterranean remnants of the foundation.
