Jamestown, RI, Deals with Waterfront Rights-of-Way Issues
April 24, 2013
Jamestown Press: Jamestown has 27 rights-of-way meant to give people access to the waterfront, but many of the easements are not maintained and only 13 are officially recognized by the state, according to Harbor Commissioner Patrick Bolger.
Bolger provided some history about the rights-of-way after a question came up during open forum at the Harbor Commission’s April 10 meeting. Jamestown resident Sav Rebecchi said he has witnessed several long-standing right-of-way violations in Jamestown Shores. He asked what the commissioners could do to deal with homeowners who illegally block access to the waterfront.
