Barrington Planning Board continues hearing for Palmer Pointe


The Barrington Planning Board will continue its hearing on the master plan application for the proposed Palmer Pointe affordable housing development.

The project, pitched by the non-profit East Bay Community Development Corporation, would include 48 rental units on the  Sowams Nursery property, which runs from Sowams Road east to the Palmer River in the Hampden Meadows section of Barrington.

The planning board met Tuesday night, June 2, to hear the final presentation by representatives for EBCDC, but an attorney for the residents' group CODDER 02806 reportedly asked the board if CODDER could invite three expert witnesses to refute claims made during the last few months by the developer.

The board agreed to allow the rebuttal. The next meeting is set for Tuesday, July 16.
