Richmond Zoning Board UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO DENY
Green Development's special use permit request
We are pleased to report that tonight February 22nd, the Richmond Zoning Board UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO DENY Green Development's special use permit request to construct a commercial-scale solar utility system at 172 Beaver River Road.
We are grateful to the Zoning Board for recognizing and protecting the historic, natural, and scenic value of this landscape.
Thank you to the many Richmond residents who came together to protect our unique town and its rural character. Your advocacy, community outreach, meeting attendance, letters and public comment over the past two years has helped raise awareness of the importance of the Beaver River Valley. Thanks to your collective efforts, the rural character of this area – and its wildlife, watershed, and land – will not be sacrificed for utility-scale solar development by non-resident owners and corporations.
The BRVCA will continue to provide updates regarding this application and any appeals. We remain committed to preserving this beautiful corner of our community for all residents and visitors.
Thank you for helping us Keep Richmond Rural.
