AWARDS, PRESENTATIONS AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

1) Proclamation #03-019P re: Susan P. Brayman

Council President Littman introduced Proclamation #03-019P honoring Susan Brayman, Jamestown Tax Assessor, for her years of service and upon her retirement.

It was moved by Council President Littman, seconded by Councilor Settipane to accept the Proclamation in honor of Susan P. Brayman. So unanimously voted.

2) Vollmer and Associates re: alternatives for Highway facility at Taylor Point

Presenting for Vollmer and Associates were John Hannigan and Joseph Donovan.

Mr. Hannigan informed the Council that he and Mr. Donovan met and worked with the Neighborhood Advisory Committee on several occasions to review the location of the public works facility at Taylor Point.

The site locations presented to the Council were as follows:

Alternate 1 Traffic would flow from Freebody Drive to Department of Public Works building. Bayview Drive would not be used. Building would be located in upper site.

Alternate 1A Same as Alternate 1 with additional area for circle drive (turn-around).

Alternate 1 and 1A would provide separation of visitor activity from Department of Public Works (DPW) yard and operations, centralized parking for both the DPW & Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) and screening of the yard from the south.

However, the building would be visible from local roads; visitor parking would be along access road to WWTP; the DPW building would be located near the aeration tank; doors to building would face north, thus exposing it to winter wind; the DPW yard would not be visible from the garage and would be less efficient; security fencing would be difficult to install and vegetation on northwest side would be removed.

Alternate 2 The building would be located in the lower right portion of the site.

Alternate 2A This plan would allow for a ring road for easier access.

Alternate 2 and 2A would provide improved operations and visibility of DPW yard; visitor activity separate from DPW operations; parking in a single level lot that can be screened from local roadways; DPW building could be screened from local roadways; site entrance and perimeter easily grated and the building roof is lower on the hillside.

However, the doors still face north and building is still close to the WWTP aeration tank; site disturbances go to the western limit set by the Council and the vegetative screens to north and northwest are very narrow.

Alternate 3 Building would be located on the left side of the lower portion of site.

Alternate 3 was presented as the preferred building location. Alternate 3 has good yard visibility; the building would be located furthest from the WWTP aeration tank; site entrance and perimeter easily grated; DPW building and parking would be screened from local roadways; building would have low profile; some vegetation is retained; doors and yard of DPW building not visible; building faces southwest, reducing winter exposure.

However, building location in this manner would require visitors to enter DPW area and park along driveway; parking would be located on a grade; drainage toward the building would need to be controlled; no afternoon sun and this site requires building beyond western limit set by Council.

The Council discussed several areas of concern:

It was the consensus of the Council that they work directly with Vollmer and Associates to determine the best site at Taylor Point for the DPW facility and to forward a copy of the presentation to the Buildings and Facilities Committee for their review.

The Clerk was instructed by the Council to put this on the agenda for the next Council meeting on August 12, 2003.

The Council recessed at 8:00 PM.

The Council returned to the meeting at 8:08 PM.

It was the consensus of the Council to move the public hearing on the Proposed Harbor Management Ordinance up on the agenda.

Public Hearing

Council President Littman opened the hearing at 8:08 PM and noted that the public hearing on the Proposed Harbor Management Ordinance was continued from July 21, 2003 to this evening for the purpose of discussion and to assign another available date for the continuation of the public hearing.

Councilor Settipane stated that on July 21, comments focused on issues that belong in the Harbor Management Comprehensive Plan and strongly suggested that the Plan be addressed first and that the hearing on the ordinance be continued.

Council President Littman noted that upon the advisement of the Town Solicitor, the Plan and the Ordinance could be dealt with at the same time.

The Town Solicitor informed the Council that he would be willing to review the history of the proposed Ordinance and Plan with the new Town Solicitor. Additionally, he stated that there is no legal impediment to prevent the Council from going forward with the hearing on the proposed Ordinance along with consideration of the Plan, as it is contemplated and intended that the Plan and the Ordinance be interrelated.

Councilor Long suggested proceeding in accordance with the Town Solicitorís recommendation.

Councilor DiGiando stated that he would like to continue with the course of action previously decided; that is, to finalize the Ordinance.

The Town Solicitor informed the Council that the hearing on the proposed Ordinance could be closed; however, the Council vote does not have to be taken at the close of the hearing. The Council could work on the Plan and then take the vote on the proposed Ordinance.

Councilor Ferguson suggested the Council proceed with the hearing on the proposed Ordinance and include the Plan in their deliberations.

It was moved by Council President Littman, seconded by Councilor Long to continue the Proposed Harbor Management Ordinance hearing to August 7, 2003 at 7:00 PM at the Jamestown Philomenian Library. So unanimously voted.

It was moved by Council President Littman, seconded by Councilor DiGiando to consider the Harbor Management Comprehensive Plan as approved by the Harbor Management Commission on August 18, at 7:30 PM at the Jamestown Philomenian Library. So unanimously voted.

EXECUTIVE SESSION ANNOUNCEMENT

None

PUBLIC HEARINGS

1) Proposed Harbor Management Ordinance (cont. from 07/21/2003)\

Previously addressed.

OPEN FORUM

    1. Scheduled request to address
    1. Letter from Patricia Eannarino re: Community Center Beautification Project
    2. Patricia Eannarino informed the Council that the landscaping firm has begun work at the Community Center. Ms. Eannarino requested that the Council budget funds for the maintenance of this landscaping in future budgets. Additionally, Ms. Eannarino noted that a sign is needed on the Community Center building. She further stated that Thomas Todd has agreed to work on a sign if the funds can be approved for this project.

      It was the consensus of the Council to put the Community Center Project on the agenda for the next Council meeting on August 12, 2003 so that the sign for the building and the maintenance plan for the landscaping could be discussed further.

    3. Letter from Donald Forest re: Resident Parking at Park Dock
    4. Donald Forest, Summit Avenue, addressed the Council regarding problems with access and parking at Park Dock. Mr. Forest resubmitted a petition from area residents requesting that parking be restricted to "residents only" during the months of June, July and August. Mr. Forest stated that there have been several meetings with the Parking Committee; however, there has been no resolution to the problem. Although, as Mr. Forest further stated, there has been increased police patrol. Mr. Forest mentioned that this issue has been tabled by the Parking Committee because of a $5,000.00 State grant received by the Town to improve the Park Dock area and the conditions attached to the funding. The regulations state that the area must be accessible; it does not say parking must be provided.

      Sharon McNeil, 947 East Shore Road, stated that the Report on Public Shoreline Access and Rights of Way in Jamestown lists Park Dock as a #2 priority. Number 2 sites require that the Town give high priority for maintenance. Ms. McNeil indicated that the right of way was not being maintained.

      Patrick Bolger, Fore Royal Court, indicated that CRMC has some authority and responsibility regarding public rights of way. Mr. Bolger suggested lifting the parking ban on Broad Street.

      Maura Hicks, East Shore Road, informed the Council that the overgrowth at the Park Dock right of way is making it very difficult to access the area. Additionally, the area is being used late at night as a meeting place.

      The Town Administrator informed the Council that she would contact CRMC regarding some of the problems in that area. Additionally, there was discussion regarding the fence installed by an abutter. The Town Administrator noted that she would inquire to determine if the proper permits were issued.

      Following discussion, it was the consensus of the Council to put public access, maintenance and rights of way on the Council agenda for August 12, 2003.

      Gayen Thompson, Hull Cove Farm Road, stated that the right of way at Hull Cove has a blind corner and is very dangerous.

      The Council discussed the lack of maintenance and policing by the State at the rights of way. The Town Administrator informed the Council that she would provide information from previous Councils regarding access and parking for their review.

    5. Rep. Bruce Long Update:
    6. i) House Bill Update

      Representative Long presented the Council with a written update on legislation concerning Jamestown.

      1. State Property Update: Cedar Lane

Representative Long informed the Council that he has contacted the Governorís office to table the disposition of the State owned property on Cedar Lane until sometime in September. Prior to any decision on the Cedar Lane property, Representative Long informed the Council that he is setting up a meeting with a representative from the Governorís Office, the Director of Transportation at RIDOT and the Town Administrator to discuss the status of this property because of its importance to the protection of Jamestownís watershed.

Susan P. Brayman, retired Tax Assessor

Representative Long presented a citation in recognition of the retiring Jamestown Tax Assessor.

    1. Non-scheduled request to address

Gayen Thompson inquired into the status of the letter being prepared by the Council regarding the Patriot Act.

Sav Rebecchi, Sail Street, stated that some members of the Conanicut Island Land Trust, an independent Rhode Island Corporation, are on the Water Resource Protection Committee and inquired if this would be a conflict of interest.

The Town Solicitor stated that the Water Resource Protection Committee acts as an advisory committee only and has no authority; therefore he sees no legal conflict.

REPORTS OF BOARDS, COMMITTEES AND TOWN OFFICIALS

    1. Town Administratorís report (attached)

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

Town Administrator's Report

July 28, 2003

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.

As some of you are well aware, over the past two years I have been working with the State to either acquire or have them apply a perpetual conservation covenant to three parcels of land located on Cedar Lane. The State acquired these properties as part of the Route 138 Cross-Island Highway Project. Although the Town did not employ me at the time the State acquired these properties, it is my understanding the main reason these lots were acquired was because they were located within the Town's watershed. It is in the Town's best interest to protect these lots from permanent development. The State is moving forward with the sale of these three properties as required by RI General Laws. Under the current law, the Town will have a pre-emptive right to purchase these properties at market value subordinate to the re-purchase rights of its former owners.

As I have stated at previous Council meetings, it is in the Town's best interest to pursue a conservation easement on these properties instead of risking loosing them at sale. I believe there is a high probability that the previous owner will repurchase the land, develop the property or sell the property to a third party for development. When it came to my attention the properties were on the agenda for disposition by the State Properties Committee, scheduled for July 22nd, I contacted Representative Bruce Long to see if he could assist us with this issue. Representative Long requested the Jamestown properties be tabled until a meeting with State and Town officials could be scheduled. The State Properties Committee honored Representative Long's request. I hope the Town and State can work together to find a way to permanently protect from development over five acres of land located within the Town's sensitive watershed.

At the last Council meeting, it appeared that certain Council members would like to formally request permission from the Conanicut Land Trust to access their property adjacent to the former landfill to install a test well.

I recently discussed this issue with Ed Surnmerly of GZA and have attached a memo from him regarding this issue. I have also attached a copy of my letter and response from another adjacent property owner requesting access to their property for the installation of a test well. If it is the consensus of the Council to request permission from the Land Trust to access their property for the installation of a test well, I will be more that happy to do so. Please advice me of your decision.

The Ambulance Association recently requested bids for a new ambulance. The low bidder was Yankee Fire & Rescue, for $95,199.00. The Association would like to award the bid for the new ambulance to Yankee Fire and Rescue.

The Public Works Department recently requested bid for the removal of trees along Melrose & Lawn Avenue. The low bidder was Warwick Tree Service in an amount not to exceed $7,500.00. 1 recommend awarding this bid.

Attached please find a copy of a letter I received from the Jamestown Fire Marshall.

For Council Consideration:

Award the bid for the new rescue truck to Yankee Fire & Rescue in an amount not to exceed $95,199.00

Award the bid for the removal of trees along Melrose & Lawn Avenue in an amount not to exceed $7,500.00

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

The Town Administrator provided the following additional information:

The Town Solicitor noted that pursuant to the High Groundwater Table Ordinance the Conservation Commission does not have a formal role in the process; however, they may look at public record and make unsolicited comments.

Council President Littman expressed his concern with the merits of the determination of the Conservation Commission and the absence of any comment from the applicant.

The Town Solicitor indicated that any review without the ability for comment from the applicant or expert witnesses is of no value.
