An important piece of Trumbull's history will be demolished if action is not soon taken! Built in the late 1800s, this historical building at 6400 Main St. has been the storefront to many businesses throughout the last century including John P. Mahoney's Feed and Grocery Store, a cigar shop, a post office, a paint store, a Diversity shop, and most recently a florist. The store building was also originally part of the Hubbell-Hadley shirt factory. It has many years of rich history yet it currently sits rotting away on Trumbull's main street, not being valued to its true potential and in talks to soon be demolished. According to Trumbull Planning & Zoning, the commission recently approved to rezone the property to a mixed use zone similar to Long Hill Green. Established on St. Joseph's Manor property, they as the applicant still need to come back in front of the Planning & Zoning commission to obtain approval for the Site Plan/structure they are proposing.

If enough residents oppose the proposal to knock down the old florist, this petition can be presented to the Planning & Zoning commission with community support, place a demolition delay ordinance into effect, and potentially work to save one of Trumbull's oldest buildings. Although currently not in the best shape, buildings can be restored and refurbished. But once it's gone, it's gone.

My name is Carolyn DeFilippo. I have been a Trumbull resident for 33 years and I currently reside in one of Trumbull's historical colonial homes built in 1862, not far from the old florist. My husband and I love this town, but we also care about the historical preservation of its vintage homes and buildings. I pass by the old florist every day and it would be awful to see it torn down. With enough community support, perhaps we an save it for a future business to thrive in!
