Anyone know what big retailer is going in on Route 25 in Monroe? Seems like it's going to be big. I'm wondering if it will be a Target or Lowes.

I do hope it's not a Wal-Mart.

Near Swiss Army off of 25 (Victoria Dr) on the Trumbull line. It's supposed to be a 161,000 sq ft major retailer.

Lowe's.

Monroe will also be seeing GBT service expanded up the length of 25 to accommodate for cheap labor.

That's what I thought since Home Depot is right around the corner. I wonder if this will push Monroe to install gas lines finally.

Several neighborhoods do have natural gas. I'm not sure I'm following you, are you suggesting that the entire town of Monroe have natural gas lines installed? Why? Who would pay for it? Few towns the size of Monroe in the state have full access to natural gas. I'd rather see sewer lines in Monroe, but they would have to go through Trumbull, and Trumbull has always resisted those efforts.

Along the main roads and cut through arterial roads, it is my understanding, that years ago Monroe turned down Trumbull's offer to extend those lines. That was a huge mistake on Monroe's part. I'm hoping that larger businesses coming into town will change that and make it more financially efficient for the town to have it installed.

Meh. If there's one thing locals around here know, it's that getting in bed with Bridgeport on any collaborative project is an invitation to get screwed.




...........................And Trumbull is even worse in that regard.

Look up Quarry Road and Fairchild-Wheeler school for the most recent examples of Trumbull strong arming.

Yeah, ouch. But I do think Monroe could benefit from Trumbull's maturity. As much as I'm not a fan of Trumbull, I think Monroe should take advantage of their geographical location to towns with more amenities. JMO.

I've lived in Monroe 20 years and can't recall a truly fair sewage deal from Trumbull/Bridgeport. I honestly can't see it happening any time soon.
