MADISON, Conn. (AP) — A proposal to store propane gas in a Connecticut shoreline community is drawing opposition from local residents.
Global Companies LLC wants to build a wholesale propane distribution plant in Clinton. Residents of Madison across the river are protesting.
The New Haven Register reports that the proposal is to develop six acres on a 37-acre site. The propane would be delivered by rail and stored in 12 45,000-gallon tanks.
Diane Whitney, a lawyer for Global Companies, said a portion of the building is in deplorable shape and will be demolished.
The facility would operate from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., six days a week and supply propane to up to 20 delivery trucks a day during peak hours in the winter. Opponents say they’re concerned about traffic.
