Proposed Trumbull veterans center gets traffic OK, bids should go out soon

Now that a traffic study has been approved by the town’s police commission, plans for the long-awaited Veterans and First Responders Center will go out to bid — and construction could break ground by April, officials say. “They are two separate bid packages but they’re going out at the same time,” said Ray Baldwin, chairman of the Veterans and First Responders Center Building Committee. “The reason that there’s going to be two packages is because contractors could bid on one based on their expertise, or there might be some that could do both.” Plans call for a new 5,500-square-foot building at 1 Veterans Circle at Kaatz Pond, the site of the former, now condemned, veterans building. The new center was originally proposed in 2020 with an initial estimated cost of around $2.5 million, but now has an estimated cost of about $4 million, officials said.
