1 million-square-foot Cromwell warehouse decision delayed until October

The Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency on Wednesday tabled until October its decision on a proposal to construct a 1.04-million-square-foot warehouse on 250 acres in the Mattabesset River watershed. These are the latest development in the saga to consider the controversial application from Scannell Properties, the same developer who constructed the 403,000-square-foot facility on County Line Road now occupied by Amazon. The application has been stuck in the agency’s review process since it was first presented in November 2021. Public hearings have been extended multiple times, and last month, the agency voted to table its discussion on the issue until Wednesday. If approved by the agency, the matter would advance to the Planning and Zoning Commission, where it would require at least one more public hearing. The project will also require special permits from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Department of Transportation, according to Cody.
