The Town of Barrington wants to hear from the community about potential development at two sites along Bay Spring Avenue.
The direct link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BaySpringSurvey
Deadline extended: Responses will be collected through Monday, April 23.
The Planning Board is tentatively scheduled to discuss the Bay Spring Corridor Study at the Board’s regular meeting on May 1st (7 pm, Council Chamber at Town Hall).
Go to the Bay Spring Zoning Study website for all the latest information on the project.
The second phase, which kicked off with a public workshop in late September, is evaluating the corridor more broadly, and will include recommendations for more flexible zoning to achieve the mix of uses desired by the Town and residents while reducing the number of non-conforming uses and lots.

Solarize Rhode Island seeks to expand the adoption of small-scale solar electricity in participating communities through a competitive tiered pricing structure that increases the savings for everyone as more home and business owners sign contracts. The Town of Barrington was selected as a Solarize community as part of the fall 2017 round of Solarize Rhode Island. When the Town participated in the fall 2015 campaign, more than 40 residents took advantage of the incentives offered through the Solarize program.
Sol Power, a Providence company, has been selected as the solar installer under Solarize Barrington. As of April 8, 2018, total capacity of systems under contract through Solarize totaled 157 kW - which means Tier 3 pricing of $3.02 per watt is in effect.
The signup period began on October 26th; the program ends on 4/27/18.
