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.

The Bulletin ranks #1 for activities
Posted on Dec 15, 2017 Comments (0)
The latest web survey data shows that The Bulletin is to the go-to place for information on activities and events.  People looking for something to do, search the village bulletin first.  Ninety percent chose the bulletin over channel 14 and the website.
Residents who already had an activity in mind but needed a time and place also relied on the bulletin over the web site or channel 14.  The calendar at the end was where 40% of the respondents started, while another third checked in Section C first.
There were not a whole lot of replies, but the trend is clear.  The Bulletin has the information people want.  The final results are listed below.

Freezing weather predicted
Posted on Dec 14, 2017 Comments (0)
Freezing cold weather is predicted this week. 
Don't forget to keep your heat set at least 60 degrees to prevent indoor water pipes from freezing.
If your waterlines are subject to freezing, open cabinet doors to let warm air circulate.  If necessary let water drip to prevent a freeze up.

Note:  When calling the Village, there is a new menu for reaching the village locations.  Listen carefully to the selections.  There are new options.  As always, if you know the extension number, you may enter it once the voice mail message begins.
Reminder:  If you have an emergency ALWAYS Dial 911.
Trustees adopt dumpster policy – Still working on PODS
Posted on Dec 2, 2017 Comments (0)
The trustees created a new dumpster policy at the November 28, 2017 meeting.  Using the same set aside method that the directors used to approve the newly approved suggested bylaws for the HVF, the final touches were ironed out on the dumpster policy one provision at a time.  The policy can be read by clicking on the HVMA Meetings Minutes and Agenda link and scrolling to the bottom of the page under Reports/Letters.
In other business the trustees felt that to be able to keep track of PODS, unit owners should be required get a no-fee POD permit that would keep track of who was using PODS.  The action on the 4PLEX rule change was postponed until March 2018.  It was suggested that a small committee be established to more clearly define “decorations” that could be firmly attached to the walls.  There was also uncertainty about the possibility of a new Fire Chief some time before March.  The new chief may have a different interpretation on acceptable decorations.
