Proposed mixed use zone could lead to Trumbull Center apartments

A plan to renovate the shopping plaza, which now has multiple vacant storefronts, including one previously occupied by Starbucks, and another that formerly housed Porricelli’s Food Mart, has received support from many of the businesses that currently occupy Trumbull Center. But a majority of residents at last week’s Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing spoke out against a proposed zone change that would allow mixed use property, including about 50 apartments, at the site. The hearing, which lasted roughly two hours, was on an amendment to a zoning regulation that would permit mixed-use developments on properties greater than five acres with road frontage and direct traffic access to both White Plains Road and Daniels Farm Road. If approved, the change, which first came before the commission in August, could pave the way for a long-discussed project to mix retail and apartments at Trumbull Center.
