Charlestown in process of creating quarrying ordinance

March 13, 2014

CHARLESTOWN — After listening to supporters and adversaries of a proposed extraction ordinance in front of a standing-room-only audience, the town council decided Monday to defer its decision until its next meeting on April 14 in order to allow time to consult with its legal counsel. The ordinance public hearing will remain open through April 14.

The ordinance is preemptive in reaction to problems Charlestown residents have had with the Copar quarry located in Westerly. Charlestown has approximately six operating quarries, which are unregulated by the town.
