A message from our friends at Bermuda Advocates for Responsible Development (BARD) regarding the massive industrial park proposed to be dropped right in the center of Chesterfield residential areas. Several local homeowners/residents have serious concerns with this development effort. Please consider attending these meetings to learn more about the “megasite” and to have your presence seen by the planners. If you live in or near Chesterfield County, we encourage you to be informed as to what’s happening. Even if you don’t live near the proposed area, there will be no escaping the economic impacts within the county. From BARD’s latest email:
