I have attended two meetings regarding the mall and its request for rezoning that will allow them to put 290 rental units on their property. While they are billing this as mixed use, that is not what we saw at the most recent P & Z meeting. What we saw was two very clear and separate entities occupying the same property.
I understand the mall needs to “reinvent” themselves. Malls around the country are either transforming or closing. It is the nature of retail and business is business. While we want to work with the mall, we must also do what is right for Trumbull. More rentals may not be it; at least not in this form.
