NORWALK, Conn. — This photo was submitted Monday by real estate broker Jason Milligan, who comments, “Isaacs Street Lemonade made from concrete lemons.”
You guessed it, he said “#winning,” although Norwalk Corporation Counsel Mario Coppola later informed NancyOnNorwalk that the City is going ahead with a new lawsuit against Milligan.
Milligan recently had concrete blocks placed along the Isaacs Street entrance to the former municipal parking lot that he bought in May 2018. The barricade prevents drivers from using the lot to get to Leonard Street. This is a problem since Isaacs Street has been a one-way road since 2015.
The City promptly disallowed parking along the “POKO’s” eastern edge to make room for two way travel. Milligan was told to remove the blocks by Nov. 16 or face a new lawsuit.
Now Milligan has playfully painted his blocks. Some have colorful geometric designs, and a tiger is in the works.
The above block is named “Nora,” he said. “Norwalk-Wall Street’s Norwhal or Norwall…”
Asked about the lawsuit, he wrote, “No new lawsuit yet. Instead they should have a conversation and just ask nicely for what they want. I will be unveiling a new Conceptual Master Site Plan CMSP soon. It will be the best plan for the neighborhood taking into account all variables, lawsuits and personalities.”
Coppola wrote, “Yes, we are in the process of finalizing a lawsuit that will served on Mr. Milligan.”
