Town Description:

Trumbull covers 23.5 square miles in Fairfield County, in the Bridgeport-Stamford metro area. A the time of the 2000 census, the town’s population was 34,243. It was first called Unity, a name that was changed to North Stratford in 1747. Its name changed again in 1797, when the town was incorporated on land from Stratford, to its present name, which is taken from former Gov. Jonathan Trumbull.

Today, Trumbull is a stable suburban community in pleasantly hilly surroundings. The Town of Trumbull sits on the western bank of the Housatonic River, which empties into the Long Island Sound, and is also bisected by the Merritt Parkway, one of the nation’s most historic roadways noted for nearly 70 beautiful parkway bridges. Trumbull residents enjoy a wide selection of historical, cultural, recreational and dining offerings within the town and in nearby communities. The area is also notable for having 65 identifiable minerals, making it one of the richest in that respect in the state. Tashua Hill, which was one of the four geodetic stations in the nation used to determine the earth's shape, is the first land sighted from this part of Long Island Sound. A famous meteor, now part of Yale's Meteorological Collection, fell at the foot of the hill in 1807.

"When I was campaigning door-to-door last year a resident mentioned that he wanted me to do something about pollution and global warming. I did a little research and thought that the town could do its small part to help the environment and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. But if every town in Connecticut does the same, then it's not such a small part anymore."
Perry Molinoff
Council Member, Town of Trumbull
"As a private citizen, anyone can tell United Illuminating they want their electricity to come from clean energy sources. The local power company doesn’t generate the power , it distributes it. So, it can then purchase that power from solar, wind, or water sources for distribution."
Perry Molinoff
Council Member, Town of Trumbull
"The town of Trumbull is proud to be joining other Fairfield county communities in advancing such an important energy initiative. Our future energy needs will only grow in the years to come and planning for those needs in a responsible and environmentally sensitive manner will be critical to our quality of life not only in Fairfield county but throughout the state. It is our hope that this movement continues to grow even beyond our state's borders and becomes a goal of all communities nationwide."
