Developers have proposed a new community of 55 homes and 181 townhomes on 65 acres of land in Bedford County with 16 of those acres being inside Bedford City. If its approved, this will be the largest development in Bedford in recent years.
In addition to residential units, there would be commercial development in a part of town that has not done well the last couple of years. Close to the proposed development area, a couple of restaurants have closed, local businesses have changed hands and are struggling. This development would help the city, the county, area residences, and local business. It would take 10-15 years to complete the development, but it would create jobs, revenue for the county and city, and could bring new business to the area.
