On the docket for Tuesday nightâ€™s Cranston City Council Meeting (the Council is meeting on Tuesday this month due to the Monday holiday), is an Open Space & Development/Restoration Bond Referendum Request that is co-sponsored by Council Vice-President McFarland and Councilman Navarro. Council Members McFarland and Navarro are sponsoring this resolution and hope to get approval from the Council to request the General Assembly to place this bond referendum on Novemberâ€™s ballot.
If approved, the bond would provide funding for Open Space Development and/or Restoration projects in each of the Cityâ€™s 6 Wards and would assist in accomplishing the goals that are proposed in the updated draft of the Comprehensive Plan.
At the very least, it will be interesting to learn the Council Membersâ€™ views on funding for Open Space and preserving natural resources throughout our City. The meeting is at 7pm in Council Chambers.
