The saga continues over the construction of a big box store assumed to be Walmart at 2 Victoria Drive, and this time the controversy has led to legal action. The town of Trumbull has filed a lawsuit against the town of Monroe over the Monroe Planning and Zoning Commission’s recent approval of the retailer’s Special Exception Permit application.
Zoning Chairman Pat O’Hara broke the news to fellow commissioners at the body’s regular meeting Thursday night. The matter, he said, has been turned over to the town’s Legal Department. Accordingly, as it is a pending legal matter, commissioners are not permitted to discuss or publicly comment on the issue, he said.
