SOUTH KINGSTOWN – Green signs exclaiming ‘vote yes’ rattled throughout the town council chamber Wednesday night as the downtown Wakefield community poured into the town hall to support Phil’s Restaurant owners Carl and Kenneth Tetzner and the Contemporary Theater Company’s plans to revitalize Main Street. Despite the flood of support for the plans, the zoning board postponed their decision until Tuesday.
