“Regretfully, last night, the Town Council voted to amend the Comprehensive Plan with language that allows the TC to establish a Redevelopment Agency, a decision driven by the requirement for the $10 million TIF in the option to purchase agreement for Wickford El. The amendment language also identifies the Wickford Elementary School property for consideration for redevelopment under RI Redevelopment Agency law.

Voting “YES”: Jason Albuquerque, Carol Hueston, Kerry McKay,
Voting “NO”: Kevin Maloney, Ellen Waxman

On a positive note, some new voices weighed in with their concerns over the proposed redevelopment plan for Wickford El, and, Councilor Waxman presented a list of concerns she has over the scale and financing of the proposed project.

Stay tuned for information regarding the Town Council’s upcoming hearings to establish North Kingstown’s first Redevelopment Agency. Public input during this process is critical.”
