We keep hearing from Trumbull Town Hall that Trumbull is moving in the right direction and how great it is that the town is buying four residential properties in a row in the North Church Hill Road area. But, in my opinion, in the Trumbull that I grew up in, and when Trumbull is at its' best, any developer or the government would have found it impossible to get four property owners in a row to sell their homes. Even when the mall was buying up homes on the streets next to the mall, it took many, many years to get everyone to sell. We should all think about that.
In order to put Trumbull in the best direction possible, we all need to stop talking about working together and actually start working together. It also requires full transparency with the residents of Trumbull. We should be working with neighbors, not approving town purchases of residential homes for an undefined or undisclosed purpose over the objections of entire neighborhoods which only found out about the proposed purchase 10 days before. It's not just what you do, it's how you do it.
