Wilton Commons, an affordable senior-housing project currently under construction on Route 7 just north of Trackside, is now accepting applications for residency. Fifty-one units for independent living will be available at the project's completion.

Seniors, age 62 and up, with annual incomes up to $53,940 (for one person) and $61,680 (for a two-person household) may apply to be considered for a unit of approximately 650 square feet.

The expected move-in date is Feb. 1, 2013.

According to the resident selection committee, each resident can expect an attractive, fully accessible one-bedroom apartment, on-site staff with 24-hour emergency call, secure access to the building, daily social events and activities, a common area, an interfaith meditation room, and attractive landscaping.
