Appeal hearing set for Breakers welcome center
Question of the Day
NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Newport officials are taking up an appeal of a ruling by the city’s Historic District Commission that rejected plans for a welcome center at The Breakers mansion.
The Newport Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1hsJ3Zv ) that the city’s Zoning Board of Review has scheduled an appeal hearing for 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall.
The Preservation Society of Newport County is appealing the Historic District Commission’s 4-3 decision against the proposed $4.2 million welcome center last August. Some commission members were concerned it wasn’t appropriate for the historic mansion’s grounds.
But lawyers for the Bellevue Ochre Point Neighborhood Association say there’s no proof the commission committed any legal error.
