BOWLING GREEN, Va. - The commander of an Army base in Caroline County is expressing security concerns over plans to build a small resort, and mine for sand and gravel, near the military training site.
Lt. Col. Peter E. Dargle wrote a letter to county officials opposing the plans near Fort A.P. Hill, saying it could lead to increased traffic, noise and lighting that could interfere with training.
The Free Lance-Star reports ( http://bit.ly/11RuIOo) that the Silver Cos. is proposing to build a 12-room lodge with a dining area, meeting spaces and other amenities off U.S. 17. They are also proposing to allow a Maryland company to mine sand and gravel on a portion of the property.
Company officials say the plans won't interfere with the base's activities and the installation should not be concerned.
