Planning Council discussed on March 25 a three-lot subdivision near Old County Road and a new greenhouse and retail business on the border with Rockland.
Plants Unlimited owner Hammon Buck has purchased three plots of land near Ocean State Job Lots on which he plans to develop a greenhouse and plant retail operation. Part of the retail space would be in the existing house on the property, which was built by the Black brothers to serve as an office and later turned into residential use. He plans to build a 19-by-54-foot greenhouse and a 16-by-32-foot commercial building, in addition to maintaining and using the existing house.
Will Gartley of Gartley & Dorsky Enigneering and Surveying, who presented the pre-application for the project, said use of the house will return to being commercial.
This project is distinct in terms of the location of the existing Plants Unlimited.
Gartley said he hoped to bring the project back to the board for the April 22 meeting. The Town Planning Council will conduct a site visit to the property at some point.
Council is also reviewing the three lot subdivision proposed by Mr. Richardson at Terrier Circle, which is off Wellington Drive and branches off to Old County Road. The project is adjacent to another subdivision.
Council has scheduled a site visit for this property on April 8 with a rain date on April 15 and a public hearing on April 22 at 5:30 p.m.
The board postponed certain items on its agenda due to lack of quorum and did not take a vote.
