Citizens for a Safe Bedford feel that this project will cause a significant risk of increased exposure to mosquitos carrying life threatening diseases such as Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus, not only for its residents, but for all Bedford residents.

This risk may be due to both the proximity of the development to a major mosquito breeding ground and also to an increased mosquito population caused by run off from a development of this size.

To find out more about West Nile Virus and Equine Encephalitisis visit the CDC website at:
