BALTIMORE — Community members held a demonstration on Friday to fight a plan to build a large convenience store and gas station in Northeast Baltimore.

People in the Hamilton neighborhood are worried about the effects a Royal Farms gas station the size of a highway may have on their community.

They say the potential noise and bright lights would lower property values. They're also worried the gas station would bring more traffic to what they call an already dangerous intersection.

Royal Farms first announced plans to build a gas station and convenience store here in 2012 and neighbors took the case to court.
