But New Haven resident John Madden, saying the project would ruin the aesthetics of the region, asked the PSB to reconsider or alter its July 8 order. Within 10 days that a certificate of public good is issued, there is a window for individuals to file a motion of reconsideration.

ADDISON — Members of the greater Addison community were working this week to help out Val and Tim Birchmore and their five kids, who lost their home on Lake Street in West Addison to a fire last Saturday night.
Around 75 firefighters from five towns rushed to the fire, which started around 7 p.m. Addison Fire Chief Chris Mullis said on Monday that the fire was under investigation, but that it appears to have started with an outside gas grill on the back porch. It spread to the house and quickly took off.
