Block Island Marina Expansion Denied

The Block Island Times reports that the Coastal Resources Management Council voted unanimously Tuesday, January 11, to deny Champlin’s Marina its sought-after expansion in Block Island’s Great Salt Pond.

This decision could possibly be the final chapter of an almost 8-year battle by Champlin’s to expand the marina into the pond. Click here for links to past articles on the Champlin’s saga posted by the Block Island Times.
