According to recently adopted revisions to its Plan of Conservation and Development, Farmington’s population of “mature” adults (age 60 and over) will increase by 30 per cent between 2015 and 2025, while other age groups will experience a decline. By 2025 one third of all Farmington residents will be above the age of 60.
The town is planning for the needs of this population by rezoning properties to its “Senior-Active Adult” zone and approving new projects within that zone. The most recent example is a 32 unit elderly (age 62 and up) multifamily building at the intersection of Farmington Avenue (Rt. 4) and Bridgewater Road approved by the Town Plan and Zoning Commission in December, 2017.
This project will include spacious 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, garages, storage areas, walking/biking paths and a community gathering space.
