Neighbors oppose plan for new church in WC
The Bedford Community Church wants to build a new 35,000 square foot house of worship in Bedford, but its a plan that's not sitting well with some neighbors.
The church's plan is to build on a vacant 13-acre lot that neighbors several residents' properties, including Gail Goodman's.
Goodman worries about the size of the new building and the environmental impact it may have. "We felt that their environmental impact statement didn't adequately address some of these issues that are really important to people that live in this community and all over Westchester County," Goodman says.
Lawyers for the church say they have taken every precaution to ensure environmental safety, and that an environmental review should be complete by the end of the year.
