MONROE, CT — Chipotle and Jersey Mike’s may be coming to Monroe. While speaking at the Fairfield County Commercial Brokers Network’s luncheon at Stone Barn Monday, First Selectman Ken Kellogg mentioned plans for the two popular eateries to move into a building proposed near the corner of Purdy Hill Road and Monroe Turnpike.
“We look forward to welcoming Jersey Mike’s and Chipotle to Monroe,” Kellogg said from the podium.
The Architectural Review Board will review plans for a 5,320-square-foot building at its meeting Tuesday, at 7 p.m. Though the address is 375 Spring Hill Road, Town Planner Rick Schultz said access to the property, across the street from Walgreens pharmacy and Goodwill, would be from Purdy Hill Road.
He said the assessor would have to propose a change to a Purdy Hill Road address, then the Planning and Zoning Commission would decide on it.
On Thursday, the Planning and Zoning Commission will accept the site plan application and set a hearing date.
“There are no wetlands on the property — a soil scientist confirmed,” Schultz said of the applicant’s expert.
The ARB application was filed by BL Companies, which is based in Meriden, on behalf of Monroe Turnpike Realty Associates, LLC.
According to plans at Monroe Town Hall, the building would have room for three tenants. Chipotle and Jersey Mike’s are shown on the architectural rendering and a third tenant has yet to be determined.
The property consists of over two acres of vacant land. Schultz said the remains of a foundation are on the site.
