President of Kingston’s Glenburnie development pushes back against residents’ concerns
The man behind a leisure development in Glenburnie says science doesn’t lie.
Ben Pilon, president of BPE Development, which is behind the Unity Farm, Inn, and Spa, says more than two years of studies show the hotel and spa development won’t impact the area’s well water supply, as many residents fear.
Pilon took Global News on a tour of the site on Wednesday, one day before the city’s planning committee is set to take a crucial vote on the project.
“We’ve followed everything the city has asked us to do to a T,” Pilon said.
“It’s been three years we’ve been doing this, from the design to the engineering to the studies. We’re done every single report needed.”
