PUBLIC HEARINGS

1)   Proposed Zoning Amendment: Plat 8 Lot 170 James J. Thompson Bayview
Condominiums - Unit 1B (cont. from 6/11/01) 
a) Opinion of Town Solicitor (as requested on 06/11/2001)
b) Letter from Tot Wright

As requested by the Town Council on June 11, 2001, the Town Solicitor
submitted an opinion on the question of whether or not the 1995 zoning
ordinance revisions, changing the zoning district in which the Bay View
Condominium property is located from Downtown Condominium to Downtown
Mixed use, supersede the 1985 creation of the Downtown Condominium zoning
district and the conditions and restrictions imposed at that time.
       Further addressing the question of whether or not the 1985
conditions, requiring that one of the units must be devoted to a
restaurant use, were affected by 1995 zoning ordinance changes.
       Some of the areas of discussion addressed specific areas of this
eight-page letter of opinion presented to the Council.
The Solicitor chronologically followed the revisions to the zoning
ordinance, noting that there is a conflict between the current language
describing the Downtown Mixed Use zone, including the tables listing what
is and is not permitted, and the terms and restrictions of the amendment
creating the Downtown Condominium zone in 1985.  
The Solicitor was of the opinion that to the extent that the current
zoning ordinance, as amended in 1995, conflicts with the conditions and
restrictions of the 1985 ordinance, the more recent amendments prevail.
      To the extent that the current ordinance does not conflict with
specific provisions for the 1985 motion - as referenced on the zoning map
- those earlier restrictions and conditions remain in effect.
      Many of the paragraphs of the 1985 motion creating the zone relate
to other issues that are no longer of concern.
      The current zoning scheme with regard to the Downtown Mixed Use
district is unwieldy and confusing.
      The Solicitor informed the Council that whether or not they adopt
the proposed zoning amendment, he would strongly recommend revising the
ordinance so that the Downtown Mixed Use zone is clearly and precisely set
forth in the text and tables of the ordinance, and that this be done in a
manner that will allow the deletion of the references to the 1985 motion
on the official zoning map; thereby clearly reflecting the Town's policy
concerning this particular zoning district.

The Council discussed if it was, in fact, necessary to amend the zoning
ordinance, as under the present zoning, Mr. Thompson may be entitled to
convert the restaurant into a residential unit.
      The Town Solicitor noted that this could be arguable; however, that
still would leave the validity and interpretation of the present zoning
district open to question.

Counselor Sollitto, attorney representing Mr. Thompson addressed the issue
of the zoning map in the Town Clerk's office.
      Counselor Sollitto noted that it is his understanding that each time
there is a zoning ordinance amendment relating to the zoning map, this
4'x8' map which is screwed to the wall, is written on with these changes,
rather than a new map being created.

Council President Settipane opened the hearing for comment.
      The following residents spoke In favor of the proposed amendment:
Mark E. Liberati, attorney for the Bay View Condominium Association noted
that exact changes were made in 1995 which superseded the zoning passed in
1985.
      Reference on the map were overlooked because of the cumbersome
process to change the map.
      The Council should clear this matter up by making a decision on how
you want the zoning to read.
      Counselor Liberati encouraged the Council to pass the proposed
ordinance and clear up any future questions.
There being no other comment, Council President Settipane called for those
opposed:

Doreen McCann, former owner of unit 1R, informed the Council that when she
attempted to use this unit as a residential unit she was denied and was
told by the Zoning Official that she faced a $500.00 per day fine if she
attempted to use the unit as a residence.
      Additionally, she stated that former Council members suggested that
she not try to change the use again.  
Councilor Settipane explained that the decision by a Zoning Official can
be appealed and asked if Ms. McCann filed an appeal.   She noted that she
sent a letter stating that she was not living in that unit.

Emmet Turley of Seaside Drive suggested reviewing the Planning Commission
minutes relating to this issue for additional information.
There being no further comment, Council President Settipane closed the
hearing and called for Council discussion.

The proposed amendment was reviewed by the Council with specific comments
and concerns of each member being addressed. 

The Town Clerk reported that she had researched the past history of the
restaurant unit within the Bay View Condominium  and zoning amendments and
found no recording of the data conditions and restrictions from the 1985
or 1995 Zoning Amendment hearings.

The Town Solicitor informed the Council that he drafted the changes to the
zoning tables and zoning map included with Mr. Thompson's proposed
amendment in order to coordinate those changes to accomplish the goals of
the proposed ordinance.
       The change to the zoning map would delete the language that states
"see the zoning revision of May 9, 1985 for restrictions and conditions." 

The most prevalent concern of Council members was the issue of loosing the
mixed use for the specific building known as the Bay View Condominium.
      However, the consensus of the Council was that the zoning ordinance
relating to that condominium warranted clarification on its intention.

It was moved by Council President Settipane, seconded by Councilor Willis
to grant the application of James Thompson to amend Article 3, Table 3-1,
as it relates to Permitted Uses and the Official Zoning Map as it relates
to Downtown Condominium, pursuant to Section 1700, for the purpose of
promoting the public health, safety, morals, and general welfare and is
consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.  Amendments are made as follows:  
1.   The term "Downtown Mixed Use" shall be deleted from Article 2,
Section 200 of the Jamestown Zoning Ordinance and "Downtown Condominium"
shall be substituted;
2.   Plat 8, Lot 170 shall be limited in use to no more than 36
residential Condominium units with no more than two bedrooms each and
associated onsite parking;
3.   The boundaries of the existing Zoning District is not changed;
4.   The Zoning Ordinance text, Table of Permitted Uses and Official
Zoning Map and text, notes, conditions and restrictions thereon shall be
amended as presented in documents attached as "Apendix A", said documents
entitled, An Ordinance Amending the Zoning Ordinance of the Town of
Jamestown"
5.   The decision shall be recorded by the Town Clerk in the Land Evidence
records of the Town of Jamestown.
The vote on the motion to grant the proposed zoning amendment was Council
President Settipane, aye; Council Vice President Swain, nay; Councilor
Littman, aye; Councilor Long, nay; Councilor Littman Willis, aye.
      The motion passed with three (3) in favor, two (2) opposed.

Council President Settipane called for a ten-minute recess at 8:30 PM.

1) Town Administrator's report

-------------------------------------

    Town Administrator Report
    June 25, 2001
    
    The following report consists of items of general interest to the
Council.
     I will be pleased to provide any additional clarification or
information you require.
    
    Public Works
    
    Steve Goslee requested bids to begin maximum recycling.
     The Town received two bids.
     Island Rubbish, the Town's current recycling contractor, was the low
bidder.
     Steve is recommending awarding a five-year contract to Island
Rubbish.
    
    Recreation
    
    Keith and Ed Gillis painted the ceiling at the Community Center last
week.
     The Gillis' volunteered their services and spray paint equipment and
completed the project in one day.
     The services of the Gillis' were a significant saving to the Town.
     Long time "Jamestowners", it's the seemingly endless volunteer
services of families like this that make this Town a special place.
     The Public Works Department will complete the painting of the walls
and trim within the next week.
    
    Mackerel Cove Beach opened last weekend just in time for the first hot
weekend of the summer.
    
    Fire
    
    Chief Arthur Christman reports there were seventeen fire / rescue
service calls for the period of June 11 through June 18, 2001
    
    Planning
    
    The Town Planner, Representative Bill Murphy and Quonset / Davisville
Committee Members Dennis Webster and Paul Sullivan met with Wayne
Schuster, the Director of Planning for the RI Airport Corporation and Mike
Mini, the Manager of Planning, to discuss the master plan for the Quonset
Airport.
     The meeting was very informative and the Airport Corporation informed
the Town that we would have representation on their committee once the
State Airport System Plan is underway.
    
    The Wastewater Management Committee recently met and was presented
with the    findings of the "Manage Analysis" being prepared by URI.
     The committee is in the    process of finalizing this part of the
background study for the Wastewater Management Plan.
     The committee currently anticipates the Plan will be ready for
hearing in July.

    Administration
    
    Bids for the landscape / drainage project for the Community Center
were due on June 21, 2001.
     The Town received three bids ranging from $ 351,200.00 to
$618,000.00. The Friends of the Community Center had anticipated the cost
of the project at approximately $200,000.00. A subcommittee to determine
the next step Friends will take will review the bids.
    
    The Town has received the Study Design Report for the Route 13 8 Bike
Route.
     The report is quite comprehensive and we have requested the State
provide the Town with five copies to allow each council member to have
their own copy to review the study.
     I hope to receive the copies of this report by Monday night for
distribution.
     The State is looking for the Town's support for the recommended
design. I will put this item on the agenda for the July 9, 2001 meeting.
    
    The State Emergency Management Office has encouraged all communities
to develop an all-natural hazardous disaster mitigation strategy.
     Once the plan is approved by the state, the Town will qualify for pre
and post disaster funds.
     We should prepare carefully for this.
     A committee consisting of Lisa Bryer, Fred Brown, Emergency
Management Director Craig Watson, Chiefs Christman, Tighe and I will serve
on the committee to develop the plan.
     An intern with the Planning Department will complete the actual
writing of the plan.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

1) Allegra vs. Jamestown Harbor Management Commission - Appeal to Town
Council (continued from 06/11/2001)

Marisa Allegra read a statement urging the Council to reverse the decision
made by the Jamestown Harbor Management Commission.
      Further requesting that the decision be remanded pending a full
analysis of the deeded water rights granted to the Allegras pursuant to
the deed to their property, together with the relevant provisions of the
Town of Jamestown Harbor Management Ordinance.
       Ms. Allegra informed the Council that there are many property
owners in the original Cottrell Farm that were given multiple moorings,
one of those property owners holds four moorings - two of them being
private and two of them being commercial.  

Council President Settipane asked to have a member of the Harbor
Management Commission address the issue of riparian owner and why there
would be residents with multiple moorings that are no more a riparian
owner than Ms. Allegra.  Harrison Wright stated that there has been
confusion relating to riparian waters - a term used to define all the
waters around the island, and riparian owners  - a term which refers to
people who own shorefront property.
       Additionally, Mr. Wright referred to a decision by the Town
Solicitor whereby it was found in 1996, in a similar appeal against the
claim to ownership, that particular strip of shorefront property known as
Cottrell Beach was owned by the Cottrell Beach Association not as
individuals.
      In the past, prior to 1990, some moorings issued in that area were
issued in error.  

It was moved by Councilor Willis, seconded by Councilor Littman to suspend
the hearing until the next Council meeting and request that the Harbor
Management Commission supply the Council with the motion and facts
relating to this appeal, and to supply the applicant with a copy of this
information ten days prior to that hearing.  So unanimously voted.

b) Downtown Parking
c)   Park Dock   

Council President Settipane noted that the Town of Jamestown received
$71,000.00 under the Open Space and Recreational Area Bonds Act.  And
therefore, we must maintain access to all citizens in Rhode Island into
perpetuity.
      It does allow us, however, the ability to regulate hours of usage
for the property.   

Council President called for comment from the audience.  
Donna Cote, Spindrift Street read a statement to the Council regarding the
problems brought about by out of town people parking and fishing in the
Jamestown Shores area.
      Ms. Cote suggested replacing no parking signs in the Shores area
with resident sticker parking and contacting RIDEM to monitor the rights
of way.

James Notarantonio, 81 Orient Street asked the Council to intervene in a
problem that he is having at Park Dock.  
It was the consensus of the Council that Mr. Notarantonio should contact
the Chief of Police to discuss the matter of trespassing on private
property. 

Hazel Turley, Seaside Drive, expressed great concern about safety issues
at Heads Beach.  She requested signage indicating bathing only.

OTHER COMMUNICATIONS

None

OPEN FORUM CONTINUED

Several residents reported to the Council that the condition of the public
restroom at the Recreation Center is dirty and filled with graffiti.  

The Council discussed the possibility of security at the public outside
restroom and specific hours that it might be open.
       The Town Administrator noted that the restroom is cleaned daily and
has been steam cleaned and bleached; however, within one month the
building was vandalized again.
      She noted that the facility has one door with a lock on it that
creates a situation where anyone can enter the restroom, lock the door and
write on the walls and vandalize the building.
      Therefore, she suggested that the restroom should be reconstructed
into a more secure facility and recommends funding in the next budget.   

It was the consensus of the Council that Chief Tighe review the vandalism
and make recommendations to the Council on how the Town can control this
problem.
