East and West Utica residents are joining forces in support of putting a new Stewart's Shop in West Utica.

At a meeting last night of the West Utica Concerned Citizens, residents passed a resolution calling for the convenience store to be located in West Utica.

Locations mentioned include the intersection of State and Court Streets near the North-South Arterial and the former Bossert site between Noyes and Court Streets.

There are currently plans to build a Stewart's on Culver Avenue, a proposal many East Utica residents are opposed to.
