The man behind a plan to put a $20 million food-to-waste energy plant on North Division Street in Ansonia declared the project dead Thursday.
Chris Timbrell, of Brooklyn-based Greenpoint Energy Partners, said city officials haven’t entertained the idea since residents, and then several Aldermen, raised doubts about the project at public meetings last year.
“We have tried repeatedly to meet with the mayor and his advisers, and to discuss ways of addressing the concerns that have been voiced, and then agree (on) a way forward,” Timbrell wrote in an email. “He has been unwilling to meet with us, so the project for all purposes, is now dead.”
