A 9-hole course and par 3 course are adjacent to the village. Heritage Village is a hub of activity conveniently situated between the excitement of Manhattan and all the best of Boston.

New Directions for Getting to the Heritage Village COVID-19 Testing Clinic on Monday
The HV COVID-19 testing clinic on Monday, January 18, from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm, will take place in the Meeting House parking lot that faces the stained glass studio, not in the Paddock parking lot or the little parking space between the Meeting House and the Ethan Allen Library. 
     We have made some improvements to the traffic pattern for our COVID-19 testing on Monday. It will still take place in the Meeting House parking lot, but now YOU MUST ARRIVE by driving DOWN Heritage Way from the Upper Activities Parking Lot by the Tennis Courts.
     You will NOT be able to arrive to the testing clinic from Hill House Road/Heritage Road, as we need to use that for cars to exit the testing clinic.
Please arrive by using either Village Street, North Pond Drive, or Lake View Drive, and then once at the Upper Activities Parking Lot, drive down Heritage Way keeping the buildings on your right.
     Don’t worry—there will be HV workers and orange traffic cones to help direct you.
     Please bring your confirmation email with the QR code and DON’T forget your mask!
     If possible please arrive during the time frame below, based on your last name. If you cannot make it during your assigned time frame, you will still be able to get tested if you are pre-registered. 
Dates for FREE COVID-19 Testing in February at Heritage Village
Community Health Center, Inc. will offer free COVID-19 testing on Wednesday, February 10 and Thursday, February 11. Details on how to sign up will be posted as soon as they are available.
     Heritage Village Master Association is partnering with Community Health Center to provide HV residents and staff with on-site COVID-19 testing every month. There will be no charge for the tests and insurance information will not be required. 
Connecticut Water Company request for rate increase
As many of you are aware, the Connecticut Water Company will be requesting that the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority allow them to raise their current rates by approximately 20%. The HVMA Administration strongly feels that this will cause unnecessary hardship to our residents. For this reason, HVMA President, Gerry Leventhal, has sent a letter to PURA, as well as a copy to Governor Ned Lamont’s office asking that Heritage Village be allowed to appoint an intervenor to have our voice heard. Click here to read Gerry's letter.
     We are now looking for those who may be interested in representing Heritage Village when this comes before PURA. Anyone interested in filling this much needed position please reach out to the Executive Office by emailing Jenn Fenn at jfenn@hvmaster.com or Gerry Leventhal at gleventhal@hvmaster.com.
The Town of Southbury has Experienced an Uptick in Confirmed Rabid Wildlife
Unfortunately, on 01/04/21, there was a Bobcat attack on a pet and her two owners in Southbury. Though this was a rare and isolated incident, it is important for residents to be aware.
     Thankfully, the dog was up to date on her Rabies vaccinations and the owners began their Rabies vaccination series. The dog has been placed on a 45 day strict confinement and should make a recovery. If the pet had not had a Rabies vaccination, she may have been placed on a six month quarantine, or even been subject to mandated euthanasia as Rabies virus poses a public health and safety issue.
     This serves as a reminder of the importance of vaccinations for pets. Animal Control asks owners to make certain that all pets, indoor and outdoor, are up to date with their rabies vaccinations.
     Animal Control would like to remind pet owners to supervise their pets and to be cautious of leaving them unattended while outdoors. While walking outside or hiking, it is recommended to have a second person accompanying you and to carry an air horn.
     Some common symptoms of rabies can be unprovoked aggression, difficulty walking, and excess salivation. If you or your pet have had contact with wildlife, call Southbury Animal Control and follow up with a healthcare provider and/or veterinarian.
    For further questions, or to report wildlife contact with a human or pet, please call Southbury Animal Control at 203-262-0613.

2021 Trash and Recycling Schedule
The new schedule is posted on the Documents page.
Chimney Cleaning Reminder
The Village has recently had a chimney fire due to a flue that had not been cleaned. During this winter season we would like to remind residents that the cleaning of chimney flues is the responsibility of the unit owner not the HVMA. Please do not assume that your chimney is prepared for a fire. Please have a professional look at it before using your fireplace. And always be sure that your flue is open before using. 
Safety Vests for HV Walkers
Fluorescent vests are available to HV resident walkers at a subsidized cost of $5 per vest. Proceeds will be donated to the HV Giving Tree. Forms of payment: Checks made out to Southbury Needy Fund, or cash. Click here to sign up online, or call the Activities Desk at 203-264-9644 option 1. Participants will be notified of pick up dates and times.
Living with Pets
We want to remind you to keep your pets indoors, unless you have them on a leash. Along with the beautiful wooded landscape that Heritage Village has to offer, there is also the risk of pets getting lost and the risk from natural wildlife. We also want to make sure that any resident who is not an animal lover is not bothered by any of our pets. One last reminder: Please remember to pick up after your pets and throw the bags away appropriately. Please do your part to keep your dearly loved pets safe and our beautiful village clean.
