FAIRFIELD - Residents in Fairfield protested today against an AT&T cellphone tower that may be put up in their neighborhood.

The proposed tower would be built behind the Fairfield Grace United Methodist Church on Fairfield Woods Road.

Residents say they don't want the tower built because it would be close to several schools and they are concerned about the children.

They also say the tower would not fit in with the rest of the neighborhood.

The proposed tower would have a 50-by-50-foot base and stand at least 100 feet tall.

Town officials say according to a state statute, cell towers can't be built within 250 feet of a school, but the state Siting Council can approve it if it finds that it won't affect how a neighborhood looks.
