To the Editors:
Having lived in Wilton for 32 years, I was delighted to read about the proposed 35-unit age-restricted housing development in your Feb. 23 edition. Wilton has been a wonderful town to raise our family in. However, as our children progressed through the Wilton school system and retirement approached, my wife and I questioned how we could stay in Wilton, in more manageable, smaller-scale housing, with little to no maintenance, in a community with other seniors of our own age. We do not want to leave Wilton but currently there are not many options. Many seniors I have spoken with feel the same way. Most don't want to leave the town where they raised their children, have developed great friendships, and lived an important part of their lives, only to go somewhere else to start over.
