The Fairfield Hills Campus encompasses 185 acres of land owned by the Town of Newtown, Connecticut. The campus includes areas of passive open space with open fields, walking trails and forested lands, playing fields and a core campus area where redevelopment of the former state hospital facility is underway. A four page fact sheet will help you learn more about the commercial development opportunities available on this dynamic campus.
The redevelopment of the campus is guided by a Master Plan that was adopted by the Board of Selectmen, Legislative Council and Planning and Zoning Commission pursuant to the Fairfield Hills Adaptive Reuse zone. Currently the Newtown Municipal Center and the Newtown Youth Academy anchor the campus.
The Fairfield Hills Authority (FHA) is responsible for the day to day implementation of the Master Plan. The plan includes recreational uses, municipal uses and limited economic development in the core campus area.
For additional information on the Master Plan and information about the economic development opportunities at the campus, contact Elizabeth Stocker, AICP in the Economic and Community Development office at 203-270-4271. You may also send an email inquiry.
