NARRAGANSETT--On Oct. 18 the town council scheduled a work session for Oct. 25 to discuss the plans for Canonchet Farm. The goal of Terrence Fleming's presentation before the council, according to Michael DeLuca of Narragansett's Planning Department was to "try and give more background and body to the overall recommendation of the planning board to the council." The town council will have the final say as to what becomes of the property.
In past meetings, a majority of members have favored less development to the leafy property.
