A lease has been authorized between the town of Newtown and Newtown Parent Connection. The non-profit will be leasing one of the duplexes on the Fairfield Hills campus for 10 years at the rate of $1 per year.
According to minutes from the Board of Selectmen's meeting Monday, the agency and the town can agree to two renewals for another 10 years each.
Newtown Parent Connection can begin renovations of the duplex after paying an initial Common Area Maintenance fee of $1,905 a year, to be paid semi-annually. The non-profit will have to pay to bring utilities to the location. They will not be allowed to sublease the facility without permission from the Town because of potential impact to a grant from the state Department of Social Services.
