Stratford’s Town Council approved a tax break for the development in July 2019. The Chipotle location was previously residential property, but was rezoned for commercial use in 2018. Under the tax abatement approved by council members in July, 2019, Chipotle and the storage facility also located in the shopping plaza, will be 100% tax exempt for three years, and will receive a tax exemption between 33% and 72% for the following four years. Starbucks is also scheduled to go into this development, but was not listed as part of the abatement schedule. The site is being developed by Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc.
