TOWN OF JAMESTOWN ZONING BOARD OF REVIEW NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT THE JAMESTOWN ZONING BOARD OF REVIEW WILL HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING DECEMBER 15, 2015, AT THE JAMESTOWN TOWN HALL 93 NARRAGANSETT AVENUE, JAMESTOWN, RHODE ISLAND AT 7:00 P.M. UPON THE FOLLOWING:
Appeal of Stearns Farms Realty, LLC, David S. Martin, and Janice Martin (“Appellants”) of the issuance of a Building Permit made out to Diane Lischio and E. Lischio, Jr. (but which property is actually owned by Erasmo Lischio, Jr., in his capacity as Trustee of the Helene C. Lischio Trust - 1992, and Diane M. Lischio in her capacity as Trustee of the Erasmo Lischio Jr. Turst – 1992) (collectively “Lischios”), whose property is located at 64 Bay View Drive North, and further identified as Assessor’s Plat 1, Lot 299. Such building permit was to “construct second floor guest quarters above garage.” Appellants seek revocation of the Building Permit due to it being in direct violation of a previous variance granted by the Zoning Board on April 22, 1986, which allowed such garage to be built within 10’ of the side lot line rather than the required 20’ and also allowed a 7’ setback from the front lot line rather than the required 40’. Such variance also explicitly required that “the plans for the building (Exhibit D) be adhered to” and those plans explicitly denied a dormer proposed in 1986 which would have allowed second floor living space. Furthermore, the expansion of the 1986 garage violates Sec. 82-311A, which limits the gross floor area of all accessory buildings to 50 percent of the gross living area of the principal building; violates Sec. 82-402 and 82-403 as no Zoning Certificate was issued, nor available for inspection, nor published as part of a list “in a newspaper of general circulation in Jamestown,” and the new second floor addition actually exceeds the footprint of the first floor with a cantilevered overhang. The property which is subject to the appeal is located in a RR-80 zone and contains 24,760 sq. ft.
Application of EPI Real Estate Holdings, LLC, whose property is located at 41 Narragansett Ave., and further identified as Assessor’s Plat 9, Lot 211 for a variance from Article 3, Table 3-2 Dimensional variances, 3. Art. 12, Sec. 1203 Parking Requirements.
1. Chapter 82 Zoning-Appendix A-Minor Subdivision Regulation. 2. Preliminary Plat check list No.3. 3. Art. 12, Sec. 1203 Parking Requirements. To 1. Divide current 10,210 into 2 lots. Lot A to be 4,059 sq. ft. instead of the required 5,000 sq. ft. 2. Lot B to be 4 ft. 9 in. rear lot set back instead of 12 ft. 3. Lot B – A variance to allow the existing configuration of parking to satisfy the requirements for Lot B. No physical alterations are being requested. Said property is located in a CD zone and contains 10,210 sq. ft.

The 2015 edition of the Rhody warm blanket has arrived at Watson Farm. This year is the 10th anniversary of the blanket, which is produced by the Rhode Island Sheep Cooperative. Each edition is a different pattern and named after a lost village in Rhode Island.
This year’s edition is called the Ram Tail Mill, which references an old woolen mill in Foster. The pattern is buffalo plaid, and the colors (creamy white and light grey) are from the wool collected in June. No dye is used; the colors are all natural.
The blankets are available in king, queen, full, twin and long throw. The collaborative produces blankets by gathering wool each year from local sheep farmers. Also available at Watson Farm is the Conanicut Island blanket, which is custom made with wool from Jamestown sheep.
