Stratford tree warden requests review of Longbrook Park tennis court plans

STRATFORD — Town Tree Warden Kelly Kerrigan has requested that the Town Council revisit plans for the Longbrook Park tennis court project to see if fewer mature trees can be taken down with an alternate layout, according to a message released on the town website Thursday.

The decision comes after multiple residents questioned at a public hearing on the project the decision to take down eight trees in the park.

Nearly 30 speakers attended the hearing on Feb. 24 to voice their opinions on the project, including state Rep. Joe Gresko and council member Kaitlyn Shake. Many were opposed because of the removal of the trees and a few voiced support for the tennis courts.
