January 28, 2011

NORTH KINGSTOWN—For many people, January is a time of great promise.
Sure, the weather is far from fantastic—it’s cold, it’s snowy, it’s icy—but, still, it’s time for a new year and, in that way, January acts as a sort of reset button for a lot of our bad behaviors.

Portion of Gifford St. abandoned

January 27, 2011

A public hearing was held on the abandonment of a portion of Gifford Street at Monday night’s town council meeting.
Gifford Street, though never developed by the town, crosses over Centre Street and runs behind Laurel Avenue.
Ryan DiFranco, of 18 Centre St., along with his neighbor at 20 Centre St. had done numerous improvements to the property even though it was town-owned land.
At Monday’s town council meeting DiFranco said he thought he was “improving the neighborhood” and did not think it would have offended anybody.
DiFranco said had he known that it would he would have approached the situation differently.
“I do apologize,” he said, for taking steps “in the wrong way.”
There were concerns expressed about whether DiFranco is allowed to park his work trailer on the property once it is abandoned.
The council made it clear, however, that that was an issue for the town’s zoning officer and not for the council.
