NARRAGANSETT â€“ The Narragansett Historic District Commission has taken up fierce opposition to some recently proposed property changes in the area of Kentara Green.
David DiClemente, the new owner of the home located at 65 Gibson Ave., and who was absent from the meeting, has proposed a two-lot minor subdivision of the property in order to build a two to three car garage with an apartment above the structure and separate from the existing single family home, essentially creating two single family homes on one residential lot.
Liaison Department Director Michael DeLuca explained that the advisory was brought before the commission to gain their input on the process. However, DeLuca emphasized that the commission does not have any legal authority over the proposed changes because the property is considered voluntary and not mandatory or regulated. The board had the option of simply making a recommendation that may or may not be adhered to by the applicant.
