Voters in Southington will decide if town pays $4.5 million to block development of 100-year-old golf course

Paying off the bonds at 2.5% interest rate would cost a total of nearly $5.7 million from 2023 through 2042. That averages out to about $284,000 a year. But if a developer put up all 114 approved single-family houses on the property, the town would pay nearly $303,000 a year — mostly in new education costs, but also for maintaining the new streets, leaf collection and other expenses, it said.
