On January 23, 2020 the Southbury Board of Selectmen unanimously approved a resolution authorizing him to execute an Option to Purchase Agreement between the Town of Southbury and the owners of the Edgewood Bath and Tennis Club (“Edgewood”). Per the agreement, the Town will pay a $3,000 non-refundable fee to the owners of Edgewood to secure an option to purchase their entire facility, including land and equipment, for a price of $2,000,000. The town has until July 31, 2020, to exercise this option. Final approval of the acquisition would be subject to a Town Meeting or Referendum.

On February 3rd, the First Selectman, Jeff Manville, appointed an ad hoc task force to study the Edgewood property and make a recommendation as to whether the Town should purchase the property. This Task Force has done a lot of work and is now ready to present its findings to the Town:
