The purpose of the Public Hearing is to consider the proposed ordinance to amend the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) as contained in the City of Warwick Comprehensive Plan 2013-2033, “City of Livable Neighborhoods”” (Comprehensive Plan), as summarized below:
Applicant: Great Pont Group LLC
Assessor's Plat: 278
Assessor's Lots: Lots 144
Location: Kilvert Street and Graystone Street
Present Future Land Use Map Classification: Technology/Light Industrial
Proposed Future Land Use Map Classification: Residential-High
Reason for Proposed Change: The Applicant is requesting a recommendation to the City Council for a Comprehensive Plan Amendment to amend the Future Land Use Map (FLUM), specifically for Assessor’s Plat 278, Assessor’s Lot 144. The FLUM depicts the intended use for these lots as “Technology-Light Industry”. The Applicant is seeking to revise the intended use to “Residential, High Density” to allow for the development of a (75) seventy-five unit residential multi-family, with waivers.
The Comprehensive Community Plan amendment proposed herein shall become effective for the purpose of conforming municipal land use decisions and for the purpose of being transmitted to the Director of Administration of the State of Rhode Island when it has been approved by the Planning Board and Town Council. This proposed amendment shall not become effective for the purposes of guiding State agency actions until it has been approved by the State of Rhode Island pursuant to the methods set forth in the R.I. Comprehensive Planning and Land Use Regulation Act.
A complete copy of the proposed amendments and maps may be examined on-line at the City of Warwick’s web page and/or copied, at cost, in the office of the City Clerk, City Hall, Warwick, Rhode Island; Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The proposed ordinance may be altered or amended prior to the close of the public hearing without further advertising, as a result of further study or because of the views expressed at the public hearing. Any alteration or amendment will be presented for comment in the course of the hearing.
All persons interested in the above are respectfully requested to be present at that time and place to be heard thereon. Individuals requesting interpreter service for the hearing impaired must notify the office of the City Clerk at 738-2006, 72 hours in advance of the hearing date.
