A Planning Meeting held this evening (May 21) has been moved from Council Chambers to Rotary Hall in the Plex; to accommodate those who oppose an application for development restrictions being lifted for potential development in a Southampton Woodland. 

A few hundred people circled the area in question on Saturday in hopes for council to vote against the application at tonight's meeting.

The protesters say the woodland is home to bears, beavers, deer, red fox, porcupines, bald eagles, egrets, as well as rainbow trout that spawn annually in the cold freshwater streams and migrating monarch butterflies. 

They also believe the area to be an important wetland, serving as a natural flood control system.
