A settlement agreement between Trumbull and Monroe regarding plans for a Super Walmart may not be so settled. The status of the lawsuit and relationship with Monroe has led to some disagreements and concerns within the Trumbull Republican Party.
The Times reported in early July that Trumbull was dropping its lawsuit, according to officials. The big box store is slated to be built at 2 Victoria Drive, directly off Route 25. Trumbull filed the lawsuit after the project received approval from Monroe Planning and Zoning in January. The lawsuit cited flooding concerns and environmental issues on the Pequonnock River. Monroe First Selectman Steve Vavrek also said in July that he was happy to move forward with Trumbull.
