There's a dearth of projects going to planning

NORTH PROVIDENCE - The North Providence Planning Board hasn't met since May 8, an unusual stretch of time off even for a town that has so little space left to develop, according to Planning Director Ed Civito.

"We haven't met because there are no projects," he said.

According to Civito, town officials are pointing to the financial situation for many people as the reason for the quiet period.

"The money situation I guess is tight for a lot of people," he said.

Civito said that officials are tentatively planning to hold another meeting this fall, but not until early November.
