The Town Council requested that the Planning Board draft a zoning overlay district to cover the Atlantic Beach District area of Middletown. Over several months, two subcommittees of the Planning Board worked to develop proposed regulations to address the uses that would be allowed in the district, and the design of buildings, landscaping, and signs. Public meetings were held on July 31, 2019 and January 22, 2020. An additional special meeting was held on February 5, 2020 to consider input received and make revisions to the draft. During its March 11, 2020 meeting the Board voted to forward the final draft documents to the Town Council for consideration.
During the recently opened Town Council public hearing, the Council requested that the Planning Board allow for additional public input on the proposal. The public hearing was left open and continued to September 20, 2021. The Planning Board has scheduled a public workshop to accept input for Monday, August 23rd at 6pm in the Town Council Chambers, 350 East Main Rd., Middletown, RI 02842
