EAST GREENWICH — With the final draft virtually complete, the town’s new comprehensive plan may be ready for both review by the public and approval by the Town Council before the holidays.
Sam Shamoon, the consultant responsible for drawing up the plan which is to guide the town’s development for the next 20 years, was questioned about the final draft by the Planning Board on Oct. 19.
The draft sits at 111 pages, with the land use portion undergoing revision after the state Supreme Court’s recent ruling barring the town from collecting payments from residential developers in lieu of required development of affordable housing units. Also, there are maps to be added to the final product.
