Stratford residents oppose plan for 24-hour AAA center

Some residents in Stratford are unhappy about a new plan to build a 24-hour AAA service center in their community.



AAA officials say that the new facility would create dozens of jobs and add millions of dollars to the town's tax base. But many residents say they are opposed to the idea of a AAA service center in their backyard.



Residents say that the only notice they received about the plan was a vague letter. They say that they don't want a busy and noisy business occupying their quiet community.



In opposition to the plan, residents have been passing out fliers and putting signs on their front lawns. They say they'll keep the signs up while they fight the plan in court.



Town officials say that the court battle could take up to a year and a half to settle.
