Richmond Zoning Board Meeting

210127 Beaver River solar plant graphic.

On Monday evening, the Richmond Zoning Board met and continued reviewing Green Development's special use permit request to install a commercial-scale solar utility system at 172 Beaver River Road. The meeting included testimony from Green Development, an attorney representing an abutter opposed to the project, and many Richmond residents who also oppose the project. The meeting lasted more than three hours. 


The Beaver River Valley Community Association would like to express our gratitude to the residents, neighbors, members, and supporters who attended and shared their concerns. We are also grateful to the Zoning Board members who were patient, thorough, and thoughtful over the course of the meeting. A full summary of the meeting can be found in Cynthia Drummond's article in The Westerly Sun, attached here. 


The Zoning Board is scheduled to meet again on February 22 to render its findings and vote on the application. Please mark your calendars and join us on February 22 at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.
