  The Property

On June 7, 2001, the voters at a Town Meeting approved the purchase of the former Fairfield Hills Hospital from the State of Connecticut. A major portion of the land on the 185-acre Fairfield Hills campus has been reserved for municipal and cultural use, as well as passive and active recreational use. The campus is open daily for the public to enjoy during daylight hours. Hiking trails are available for public use and the various playing fields are managed by the Newtown Parks and Recreation Department.

A comprehensive reuse vision for the property is presented in the Fairfield Hills Master Plan. A select number of existing buildings and land parcels have been designated for private commercial purposes. A number of commercial uses including retail, offices, restaurants, banks, sports, cultural activities and business services will provide the community with a vibrant multipurpose campus.
