Heritage Village is a unique, 55+ active retirement community nestled in Connecticut's beautiful Litchfield Hills, surrounded by natural ponds, rivers and trails.  Residents enjoy a wide variety of clubs and activities, an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, and beautiful private pools.  It's a hub of activity situated peacefully and conveniently between the excitement of Manhattan, and all the best of Boston.  We are home to a diverse group of active, friendly and discriminating seniors who will tell you "Heritage Village is a great place to visit, and an even better place to call home."  WHERE TRADITION MEETS TOMORROW.
There's no place like Heritage Village.

Southbury Patch repeats Eversource scam warning
Posted on Jan 11, 2017 Comments (0)
Editor's Note:  We ran this article back in November, but the scams have not gone away.  A Villager received two of these calls recently.  One promised solar panels and the other offered a generation rate of 12 cents.  The going rate from Eversource right now is 7.87 c/per KWH for a 12 month fixed rate.
In both calls, the caller asked for the account number on the Eversource bill. 
Scams involve phone calls and door-to-door solicitation
Eversource Energy officials said business and residential customers are continuing to get calls and visits from individuals claiming to be “representatives” or “partners” of Eversource.  They are either scams, or a competitor’s utility officials said.

CAI ponders special assessments to be implemented like budget vote
Posted on Jan 9, 2017 Comments (0)
Revised Jan. 16, 2017
A survey by the Community Association Legislative Activity Committee members on issues that could be implemented this legislative session without costing the state additional money came up with the following:
  • Loan process to be similar to budget ratification process
  • Change requirement for manager to be bonded instead of buying insurance
  • Insulate association boards from criminal liability to use same standard as for non-profit board
  • Change requirement of certified mail for owner notifications
  • Definition of what is a “rule”
  • Towing on association property to be the same as statute for business signage
  • Dogs roaming on common property (Dog catcher bill)
The item which may have the largest impact in the Village may be the effort to change the process for approving loans.  Because many condos across the state have had difficulty getting approval to take out a loan, CAI would like to explore using the same process as is used to approve budgets.  Everywhere in the state outside of the Village, budgets are rejected by a majority of unit owners it the unit owners do not like the budget.  Loans, however, must be approved by a majority of unit owners.

Staying connected cited as important to well-being
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Forget bingo and shuffleboard. Use of computers and cellphones is linked to higher levels of mental and physical well-being among those over age 80, according to new research.
And these elders - dubbed “the oldest old,” a generation typically ignored by the youth-obsessed tech industry - are motivated for the same reasons as digital-savvy millennials: to stay connected.

Village marketing website joins dinosaurs
Posted on Jan 9, 2017 Comments (0)
The marketing website at www.heritagevillage.org is now extinct.  The information on the site was totally outdated.  The information that was on that site now exists on our current website www.HeritageCTVlg.org, and will be updated shortly.  It was a wonderful site when is sprang to life a number of years ago.  It was very creative and professionally done.  Unfortunately we did not maintain it properly and it died of malnutrition.
