HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A 10-year legal battle over a proposed McDonald's on a vacant lot in Hartford is nearing a conclusion. The Hartford Courant reports the city has reached a tentative agreement with a developer who had sought to build a fast-food restaurant on a small lot in the West End. Residents had opposed the plan, and the city has eyed the former gas station spot for a retail and apartment development. Under the tentative agreement, the city will pay developer Eliot Gersten $1.8 million. The settlement has to be approved by the city's Court of Common Council, which is expected to take it up this month.
