The Barrington Planning Board holds a public hearing tonight, Sept. 12, on a request to add another lot to the approved master plan for the nine–lot Bluemead Farm subdivision in the Rumstick neighborhood.
The meeting starts at 7 pm in the School Committee Room in Town Hall.
The Board also will hold a public hearing on a proposed two-lot subdivision on a 3.38-acre lot at 83 Rumstick Road.
And it will form subcommittees and discuss the process for updating Barrington’s Comprehensive Community Plan, including new RI requirements.
The Bluemead Farm developers want to add another market-rate lot to the subdivision, which would then include 10 lots, including three affordable housing units. Frontage for the lots would be on Chachapacasset Road, Rumstick Road, Beach Road and a new street intersecting Chachapacasset at Lewis Street.
