Our take: This article in the Hartford (Conn.) Courant presents a fair analysis of dissenting opinions about the planned Hartford Connecticut Temple.
When The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced its plan to build a temple in Belmont, Mass., it faced a number of public complaints about how the new building would disrupt life in the town. Now, 12 years since the Boston Massachusetts Temple was dedicated, a similar situation is taking place in Farmington, Conn.
City officials addressed residents' concerns that the new Hartford Connecticut Temple would uncomfortably increase the city's traffic, The Hartford Courant reported. Despite local reservations about the location of the new temple, a six-day study at the Boston Massachusetts Temple performed by an LDS architect and a traffic engineer indicates traffic will not be a problem for Farmington.
