Statement by the Board of Directors of the BCA

Based on current information available about the proposed construction of a hotel adjacent to the Milleridge Cottage site and the objections and concerns expressed by community residents at our January 15, 2019 meeting, the board of directors of the Birchwood Civic Association cannot support the hotel project at this time.
