  1. Thank you for including Allen Wilson’s comments to the Board. This megasite proposal is already affecting citizens homes in the area in real time – NOW. It will only get worse if this moves forward. The uncertainties are too great, and the gamble too big for this to be approved. We must stand against this rezoning case, to protect our home values and way of life.

    FLYOVER! Bermuda Advocates for Responsible Development (BARD) is releasing a new drone video to better illustrate the impacted areas of the proposed “Matoaca” Mega Site and East-West Freeway – see link below: SHARE – SHARE – SHARE

    We believe that this is the wrong place for a heavy Industrial Mega Site. The Chesterfield Comprehensive Plan agrees. The Chesterfield I-3 zoning ordinance also agrees “no I-3 zoning next to Residential zoning.” This property should not be rezoned from Residential to I-3. Also, there is no major road, no rail line, and no utilities infrastructure to the site.

    Why is Chesterfield pursuing this project in the completely wrong location? We believe it is because the present owners want to sell it, and Chesterfield is willing to pay a premium for it as a stepping stone for the East-West Freeway into Matoaca, regardless of the citizens wishes. BARD has a petition signed by over 1700 residents who oppose this rezoning. The petition is growing daily.

    BARD is releasing the attached video for use by the media in its entirety. Partial video may be used with permission.

    if you are opposed, IT IS IMPERATIVE to attend the upcoming meetings and protest this week and next!
