NARRAGANSETT â€“ The Narragansett Planning Board and Historic District Commission convened on Tuesday evening for a special workshop to analyze possible amendments to local historic districts and to identify key properties and areas for potential district additions. The subcommittee focused on the need to further examine designations and districts in light of the recent controversy surrounding a proposal to subdivide a lot on Kentara Green, specifically one of the Sherry Cottages.
Over the course of the last two months, many residents have been up-in-arms about a proposal made by David DiClemente to sub-divide his property at 65 Gibson Ave., sitting on Kentara Green, in order to build a two to three car garage with an apartment above. The apartment was originally not part of the proposal, but was added later in order to adhere to the townâ€™s policy on lot sub-divisions. The proposal came before the planning board and historic district commission at different times throughout the course of the last two months.
