NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ The North Kingstown Planning Commission engaged in a lengthy discussion Tuesday evening regarding a comprehensive plan amendment that was denied by the Statewide Planning Program that dealt with the Schartner Farms property.
The discussion centered around a March 26 letter from the planning program to the NK Planning Department explaining the denial. The piece of property was originally zoned village-residential and the town changed it to commercial in 2007, which was reflected in the future land use map and zoning ordinance.
