Sen. Formica Attends Groundbreaking at Victoria Gardens Elderly Housing Development

October 5, 2017


On September 25, lawmakers and state officials joined together to break ground at Victoria Gardens in Waterford, the site of a new construction of 90 units of elderly housing, including 72 affordable rental housing units.

“It is exciting to see this project begin in Waterford, a project which has the potential to help many seniors attain affordable housing so they can age-in-place,” said State Senator Paul Formica (R-East Lyme). “Connecticut’s senior population is growing, but many seniors often find themselves unable to afford living on their own. This development is a positive opportunity for our community and I look forward to seeing many seniors in Waterford find homes in this development once completed.”waterford2

The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority awarded low-income federal tax credits to Victoria Gardens to help develop the affordable housing units. Victoria Gardens was one of six locations selected to receive these credits in 2016.
