Additional Description The Town of Somers invites experienced qualified developers to submit proposals for the development of the former site of the Somersville Mill located at 40 Maple Street less than a quarter mile off Route 190. This now-vacant lot is 5.38 acres and is bisected by the Scantic River, offering an opportunity for riverfront development in the town’s Somersville Historic District. The Town has determined that this site would be best suited for commercial, recreational, residential, or light industrial use, including mixed-use development. However, officials are open to other creative development approaches and has implemented a Planned Development District at the site allowing for flexibility in use and design of the proposed project.
