The intersection known as 5 Corners in East Farmington is where Colt Highway (State Route 6), Birdseye Road (State Route 549) and Fienemann Road meet, not far from 2 I-84 interchanges, 2 hotels, a large corporate office park, many medical office buildings and 2 apartment complexes. The town has identified this area as a “gateway” to Farmington and will be studying how it can be made more attractive and welcoming. Currently the 5 Corners intersection is home to a gas station, fast food, office and automotive uses.
Earlier this month the Town Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved an amendment to the town wide Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) to allow for limited commercial uses on the only remaining vacant parcels of land at 5 Corners. The uses the Commission is willing to consider include restaurant, retail and office uses, but no particular use has been approved at this time. An application for a new commercial building on the vacant land at the northeast corner is likely to be considered by the Commission at a public hearing in early 2017.
