Town Description:

The Town of Middlebury, located in New Haven County, was incorporated in 1807 and covers 18 square miles of ground. Hartford lies 35 miles to the northeast, Waterbury 6 miles to the east, New Haven 19 miles to the southeast. New Your City is an hour and a half away by car.

The town is accessed via Interstate 84 (exit 17 passes through the southern portion of the town, connecting to Route 8 in Waterbury) and by Connecticut Routes 63, 64 and 188.

Nearby airports are the Waterbury-Oxford Regional Airport, Bradley Airport in Hartford and JFK in New York.

Middlebury is an attractive residential community with wealth indicators (as measured by per capita income and median home value) above regional and state average.

Recreational facilities and year-round cultural events are close by. Quassy Amusement Park, a local ski trail, and a town lake are some of the more popular amusements. Teikyo Post University is a short drive away, offering a variety of adult education as well as regular degree programs.

Middlebury encourages appropriate commercial and corporate development, which keeps its tax base diverse and lessens the tax burden on individual homeowners. A major commercial/professional office complex is located near the Route 63/interstate 84 interchange. Smaller complexes have been developed along Straits Turnpike and in the center of town.

Middlebury is primarily a residential community, with residents living in the town and going to work in surrounding communities. However, the town is also the home of three major corporations who provide employ-ment to local residents. Crompton & Knowle CT Witko, a manufacturer of chemicals and rubber and plastics products, employs approximately 500; Timex Group Ltd., maker of watches, clocks, gyroscopes and fuses, employs approximately 260; and General DataComm manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, employs approximately 1200 between its Middlebury corporate center and its factory in nearby Waterbury.

Another large employer is Precision Industrial Components Corp., maker of bearings, gears, and fasteners, which employs about 100 people.

The town is also home to Woodside Heights, a special housing development for senior citizens living on fixed incomes. The complex consists of 70 one-bedroom apartments.
