Fairfield Hills: Yes, We Can



Text Size

To the Editor:

Yes, we can preserve Fairfield Hills as a destination for generations to come.

Yes, we can listen to the residents who overwhelmingly said keep the campus free of housing.

Yes, we can be more creative in finding solutions.

Yes, we don’t have to capitulate to profit-motivated housing developers.

Yes, Fairfield Hills is a destination for all, not a private residence for a few.

Yes, we can commit funds and seek grants to preserve Fairfield Hills as a Destination.

Yes, there are other uses for the buildings than housing, welcome the New Pub, the Newtown Youth Academy, the Parent Connection, the Municipal Center, the Senior Center and the Community center.

Yes, we have built a new entrance, put utilities underground, built sidewalks, and removed decaying buildings to preserve Fairfield Hills as a destination.

Yes, we have created playing fields, quiet areas, preserved open space, held concerts and fundraisers, held Newtown Day, built a garden, and hold farmers’ markets.

Yes, hundreds of residents take a daily walk at Fairfield Hills, runners practice, dogs get walked, and plants are planted.

Yes, we can continue to be true to the vision we have for Fairfield Hills to be a destination for generations to come.
