“Speechless” is the way Sharon Coldren felt when she learned the VI government gave its approval to plans for 16 luxury townhouses on land overlooking Coral Bay.

Coldren called the approval of Bordeaux Mountain Villas by the Planning and Natural Resources Department a very “sad occurrence.” One of her primary concerns is that storm water will runoff from the hills into Coral Bay.
