First ‘cohousing’ project in Connecticut comes to Bethany

Ground was broken Tuesday on the state’s first “cohousing” community, an environmentally friendly development of 30 small homes, a large common house and an organic farm on 33 acres where a former dairy farm sat on Meyers Road, off Old Amity Road. “Rocky Corner,” as the development will be called, has been going through the approval process for years, with some town residents objecting because 13 of the homes will be set aside for those who meet the standard for “affordable housing” under state guidelines — which is much different than low-income housing, officials have had to explain.
