Amendments to the town Zoning Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan to assist New England Institute of Technology received unanimous second reading approval from the Town Council Monday night after college representatives updated town officials on their plans for the growing campus on the former Rocky Hill Fairgrounds site.
CHARLESTOWN â€“ In an effort to provide another community-based activity and provide produce to area food pantries, Richmond resident Christopher Hacunda is installing a vegetable garden inside Ninigret Park.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ The Coastal Resources Management Council is allowing Matunuck Beach Road property owners to install temporary wooden bulk heads to prevent further erosion of their properties if the town council approves.
NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ At Rhonda Barnerâ€™s new shop, Mr. Willoughbyâ€™s Country Store, the economic trend is neither bullish nor bearish. It is bunnyish.
And if your idea of a country store is spinning wheels, butter churns and jars of homemade jelly, think again. Things are really hopping in this updated idea of rustic chic.
Opening earlier this month, Mr. Willoughbyâ€™s, a tiny boutique located on the side of a large storefront, features an inventory of country-style decorative pieces such as stuffed rabbits, sheep and cows as well as wreaths and candles.
