FAIRFIELD — Some residents didn’t hold back Tuesday night when they got the chance to let the Town Plan and Zoning Commission what they think of a proposed assisted living facility on Stratfield Road. One man’s comments even prompted a commissioner to leave the room in disgust.
Sunrise Senior Living is the contract purchaser for Congregation Ahavath Achim, 1571 Stratfield Road, and an adjoining residential property. The proposal calls for a three-story building, housing assisted living units on the first two floors and a memory care unit on the third floor on the 5.2 acre site in an R-3 zone. Assisted living facilities are allowed in the zone, with a special permit. The hearing has been continued to next Tuesday.
