Plans to put a Pentacostal church at the end of a residential street in East Hartford worries neighbors.

Courant Staff Writer Hilda Muñoz reports:

The Pentecostals of Greater Hartford have applied for a special permit to build a 14,000-square-foot house of worship and a lot with 337 parking spaces at 57 Christopher Court, according to town documents. The main entrance and exit would be on Christopher Court.

“We’re fighting this because it’s going to completely change the neighborhood,” [one neighbor] said. “There are a lot of younger kids. Kids play here. I have a special needs child.”

“I have nightmares about it, Nancy,” said [another neighbor]. “Why can’t they leave us alone?”
