Critical Benton County Bird Habitat at Risk Due to Development, Opponents Say

Mar 23, 2021

Approval for a proposed Lindsey real estate and golf development called the "Links at Centerton" was tabled after a public hearing by the Centerton Planning Commssion and Board of Zoning this week, pending review by Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, which operates the Charlie Craig State Fish Hatchery close by. Birding experts oppose the project saying migratory and native birds rely on the constructed wetland. Hundreds of nearby residents also oppose the development citing traffic congestion.
