OPEN FORUM

1)   Scheduled Requests to Address
     a) Jesse Lewis, Public Affairs Advisor for International Shipping
Partners (property management firm for the Big Red Boat II)
Jesse Lewis, Admiralty Associates, public affairs advisor for
International Shipping Partners and Captain Sten Bergqvist, Vice
President, Maritime Affairs for International Shipping Partners appeared
before the Council to answer questions regarding the damage done to the
two power cables that supply electricity to Jamestown.
      Mr. Lewis, on behalf of Premier Cruise Lines, expressed their deep
regret for the damage done in Jamestown by the severing of power cables.  
Captain Bergqvist related the events that led to the loss of power.
      The Captain informed the Council that the Big Red Boat II was duly
anchored at the assigned anchorage and upon departure there were some
difficulties experienced in hoisting the anchor.
      However, the anchor was aweigh (just clear of the bottom) when the
captain and the pilot decided to go under way because the anchorage was in
an exposed area.
      They proceeded to Brenton Reef to properly hoist the anchor.
      As the vessel passed the cable area, without forewarning, the anchor
rigged out again.
      The vessel was stopped and no further attempt was made to hoist the
anchor; the anchor was cut off; and with permission from the Coast Guard,
the vessel proceeded.  At present, the incident is under investigation by
the Coast Guard.
       Captain Bergqvist reported that subsequently, the Big Red Boat II
returned without incident.
      Captain Bergqvist noted that some claims have been received by the
Narragansett Electric Company and these claimants will be contacted with
the procedure for submission.
      The telephone number to contact GAB Robins Environmental & Marine,
Inc., a claims agency located in Kingwood, Texas is 1-888-422-2524.
Councilor Swain, in an attempt to clarify some of the maritime
phraseology, reiterated that the anchor was fouled; but since it was off
the bottom, rather than lower it down again, you decided to proceed to a
more secure area.
        Additionally, Councilor Swain asked if he was correct in
understanding that the Big Red Boat II proceeded out of the Bay with the
anchor dangling from the bottom of the boat, the brake mechanism that was
holding the chain and the anchor malfunctioned and let go; thereby
dragging the anchor on the bottom and catching the cables.
      Captain Bergqvist thought that seemed a correct assumption.
      The Council expressed great concern that there may be additional
problems and requested that Mr. Lewis return in 60 to 90 days to update
the Council and answer any questions they may have.
      Mr. Lewis was agreeable to the Council's request to return to
Jamestown in 60 to 90 days.  
2)   Non-Agenda Requests to Address
Maureen Volpe, 275 East Shore Road informed the Council that her family is
extremely concerned with the arrangements to use the abutting property as
a parking lot for the tall ships traffic.
      Mr. and Mrs. Volpe were not informed until June 26, 2000 of these
arrangements.
       John Volpe and Eleanor Volpe stressed how upset they were that
there was not notification to the neighboring property owners.
      Mr. Volpe reviewed past experiences with this type situation and
requested the Council's assistance in working to protect their property
and the wells in that area.  
The Council assured the Volpes that they would address these concerns with
RIDOT and work towards a solution that would be satisfactory to the
neighbors.  Fencing for that area would be strongly recommended.  
Stephen Tiexiera, 91 Howland Avenue noted his concern about the soccer
field being used as additional parking.  
The Town Administrator reviewed the plans for parking and the arrangements
between the State and Laidlaw Bus.
      It was noted that as a stipulation for using the soccer field, the
State would  return the field to its present condition and the State would
cooperate with the Town's request to lift the well restriction on this
property.
      The Town Administrator informed the Council that she was expecting
Eugene Coulter from RIDOT to attend tonight's meeting to answer any
questions the Council may have.

RIDOT will restore the Jamestown playing fields in as good or better
condition as they were prior to the use of those fields for Tall Ships
overflow parking.
      The e-mail also noted that the State is favorably disposed to
releasing the well restriction if all other conditions, as stated in the
e-mail, are met.  
Council President Long addressed the concerns of the abutting neighbors
and requested that RIDOT install orange netting or fencing to protect
their property and arrange for removal of any debris.  
Mr. Coulter informed the Council that there are plans to remove litter and
put up barrels and tape  to keep attendees from going onto the abutting
property; however, Mr. Coulter assurred the Council that he would take
these concerns back to RIDOT.
      The Council discussed the need to protect the private wells on
abutting property and the watershed in that area.
       Councilor Swain inquired why the Town had not been approached for
permission to locate a parking lot in that area.
      The Town Administrator stated that special event parking is allowed
under the Zoning Ordinance (page 29, table 3-1 Permitted Uses, 5. Special
Event Parking).
      It was suggested that consideration should be given to changing the
ordinance.
      In addition, the lack of any consideration for notice to abutting
property owners was discussed.
The Town Administrator answered concerns raised relating to the number of
people visiting Jamestown for the Tall Ships event, noting that Chief
Tighe and other Town Officials have been working on plans relating to
public safety.
      In addition, arrangements have been made for thirty porta-johns;
first aid stations; a comfort station located at the Community Center;
dumpsters around the island; road restrictions for parking; and a Public
Works Department crew on duty.    
Mr. Coulter informed the Council that Laidlaw Bus has indemnified the
State and Town of Jamestown from any spills (antifreeze, oil, gasoline)
happening on the property being used for parking.
      Mr. Coulter also noted that this fall, the property will be graded,
seeded and any refuse removed.  Council President Long requested that Mr.
Coulter bring the following concerns to the Director of RIDOT:
     property inspection following event for any fluid spills
     trash removal
     substantial fencing for abutting property owners
It was moved by Councilor Long,  seconded by Councilor McIntyre to approve
the use of the Eldred Avenue field for parking during the Tall Ships event
in lieu of the conservation and requests made by the Town Council to Mr.
Coulter of RIDOT.  So unanimously voted.
     ii)   Approve parking restrictions on the attached list of roads
during Tall Ships visit

Chief Tighe reported that the parking ban will be in effect one minute
after midnight.
      This will be advertised in the Jamestown Press and signs will be

approved rights-of-way.
      Mr. Pritchard informed the Council that Harbor Management Commission
has budgeted for the survey to be done and are requesting that the Town
maintain the vegetation to assure that these areas remain open.  
Mr. Pritchard noted that there are approximately thirteen rights-of-way
being considered, approximately seven of those are done and properly
marked.  Arrangements will be made for granite markers which cannot be

       Given the Council's permission, the Friends of Jamestown Skaters

several areas of concern relating to Hull Street and the old Jamestown
Bridge.
      Mr. Grenier and other area residents informed the Council that along
with safety issues caused by people parking up and down Hull Street, they

using the bridge as a fishing pier and a meeting place.
      It was also reported that people have been sleeping on the bridge as
well as people drinking and having cookouts and there.    
Anthony Simeone, 54 Hull Street, stated that the design for cross island
traffic is poor and suggested that a parking ordinance should be
considered.
Catherine Peltier, 52 Hull Street, addressed the volume and speed of
vehicles traveling local access roads in Jamestown.
      The traffic has increased dramatically on Hull Street which is
located directly off the Helm Street exit  and is used by many motorists
as a high-speed short cut through a thickly settled area.
      This roadway cannot safely continue to accommodate vehicles
operating in both directions.
      Ms. Peltier urged the Council to designate Hull Street as a one way
road, preferably following a westerly direction.
Daniel Lilly, 132 Beach Avenue, noted that Hull Street was not the only
area of concern.
      Mr. Lilly stated that Beach Avenue is having the same types of
problems and he requested that it be included in the Council's
considerations.
The Council discussed this issue at great length, noting that RIDOT had at
one time maintained a fence to keep people off the bridge.
      The Town Administrator informed the Council that RIDOT has been
approached, in the past, to maintain the fence - which they did for a
while; however, they are no longer attempting to secure the bridge from
trespassers.
