I was absolutely shocked to read that the Town Council will entertain a resolution to disband the Trumbull Community Center Study and Building Committee (with appreciation for a job well done). Whatever happened to the people of Trumbull having the right to vote on a referendum? Wasn't that one of Mrs. Tesoro's campaign promises? She never said she was against the center; she always said the people should have their say.
In February of 2015 the Town Council voted in a 17-1 non partisan manner to establish the committee. It appropriated $175,000 to do a feasibility study and conceptual design. Over two and a half years the committee met 51 times, visited over 20 sites and held countless public forums on the subject. The committee submitted a site selection that the Town Council approved. In the end, after retaining an architect and a construction firm the committee submitted architectural renderings and detailed building costs of $17.5million.
