Another press release from BEST:
At 3pm on Friday 23 March 2007, The Bermuda Environmental and Sustainability Taskforce (BEST) will be presenting to Environment Minister Neletha Butterfield its petition objecting to the issuance of the Special Development Order for the Southlands development as published in draft form on 9 March 2007.
Mr. Stuart Hayward, BEST Chairman, said “These signatures have been collected in response to the Minister’s request for public input on this important issue. We see our role in this as providing a vehicle for members of the public to make their feelings known.”
Petition signatories of Bermudians, Bermuda residents, and interested parties around the globe have left comments on the electronic petition. These will be tallied and the totals added to those on the paper petitions.
BEST will continue gathering signatures until the SDO is either issued, modified or abandoned.
Update: The time of the presentation has been changed to 3pm rather then 12 noon.
