UConn looking for new location for Fairfield County Extension Center

Stony Hill Preserve, Inc., a 501(c)(3) that acquired an 11-acre property in May 2017, has sent a notice to UConn that it would not be renewing the lease for its Fairfield County Extension Center.  The Newstimes reports that UConn is now looking for a new home to the regional extension program that's been located on Stony Hill Road for more than 60 years.  The notice was sent in February, and given an vacate by date of August 1st, but there are programs still going on.  The  programs range from master gardening and youth development to nutrition, urban agriculture and soil nutrient analysis.  The Fairfield County Extension Center will rent the property on a month-to-month basis until early 2023 as it seeks a new site.  No plans for the property have been submitted to Bethel's Land Use Office.
