State's Getting Older – And Not Planning For It --

"My biggest concern is not the individual homeowners, it's the ability to attract and maintain commercial businesses, so we can allow individual homeowners to be able to afford to live in Vernon Connecticut" said Vernon Mayor Jason McCoy, a young lawyer. "We have a lot of housing that is built and suited for people to walk to work. But we don't have the mills anymore."

Vernon, like the rest of the state, hasn't had the mills for decades. But it's got a hospital, a 50-person police force, public works department, a school district with 900 employees and loads of elderly residents on fixed incomes with tax exemptions and a town that provides trash and leaf pickup.
