Citizens Protest Bellevue Development

Posted at 8:30 PM, Mar 17, 2016

Protesters rallied outside of one of Mayor Megan Barry’s events to have their voices heard about a proposed development in Bellevue.

They held up signs outside of the Loveless Café, where Mayor Barry was speaking to a group on growth.

The activists wanted to stop the Rochford Company from building 1,400 homes between Williamson and Davidson counties.

The signs read "Save Stephens Valley." One of the protesters, Laura Turner said adding that many homes to the area would create big traffic problems.

The developer recently told NewsChannel 5 traffic in the area has already been slated to increase by 43% in the next two decades, even without his project.
