North Kingstown how has land zoned compact village development. The new zoning district got its first takers as the NK Town Council rezoned portions of the Route 2/102 intersection as a CVD – including the land at Rolling Greens Golf Course.
This is the first time the CVD zone has been used in town after the council recently passed an updated version of the zoning district. The North Kingstown Planning Commission rehashed the existing CVD following discussions regarding the application for a village center at Rolling Greens Golf Course.
The project, called The Preserve at Rolling Greens, has come under heavy scrutiny from residents who are against more commercial in the area and also want to preserve the rural landscape at that intersection.
The council unanimously passed the zoning change at its Friday night meeting. The new zoning changes Rolling Greens from residential and caps commercial space between 24,000 and 40,000 sq. ft., per the recommendation of the Planning Commission. In addition to the golf course, the council rezoned Corner Tavern and the former Bald Hill Nursery property as CVD.
