Army Proposal Draws Fire
Middletown Residents Say Training Facility Would Compromise Quality Of Life

Hartford Courant (CT)
December 30, 2007

MIDDLETOWN - Along rustic Freeman Road, near the Haddam line, residents 
opposed to a planned 200,000-square-foot Army training center on 40 
acres of meadow and forestland are preparing to take a stand.

On the north side of the road this past week, posters were pinned up in 
front of the homes, attesting to a quality of life that the residents 
feel will be lost if the project proceeds on this land, owned by 
Connecticut Light & Power Co.

On the south side, directly across the country road, a survey team hired 
by the Army, with a dump truck and a bucket loader, began poking into a 
picturesque hayfield. Freeman Road resident Paul Schukoske's folks sold 
a large portion of the field to the power company years ago. The Army is 
testing the 40-acre site as it talks to CL&P about a sale.
