Bristol Phoenix: Warren group forms to fight Settler's Green housing proposal
A group formed to fight the Settler's Green housing development plan off Kinnicutt Avenue has amassed nearly 700 members and has raised close to $1,000 in the four days since it was organized.
Members of Save Bettencourt Farm have organized a full board of directors, started a petition drive, plan to hire legal counsel to help them fight the development or possibly save it as open space, and are in the process of applying for 501(C)3 non-profit status. A website, www.savebettencourtfarm.org, is in the works.
The group quickly sprung up this week following Monday's Warren Planning Commission meeting, at which an attorney for Last Ever Realty LLC informally introduced the project to board members.
