Palmer Pointe meeting is tonight


The Barrington Planning Board will meet with East Bay Community Development Corporation representatives for a pre-application meeting on Palmer Pointe tonight.

The meeting will be held in Barrington Public Library beginning at 7 p.m.

Palmer Pointe is a 48-unit affordable housing development slated for land currently occupied by Sowams Nursery.

Pre-application meetings do not typically allow for public comment but tonight will be a different story as planning board chairman Michael McCormick has decided to permit public input.

The decision was well received by Community Opposed to Development 02806, a group of residents who have banded together against the project.

The EBCDC hosted an informational meeting on the proposal at the same venue last month.
