East Prov City Council Votes to Re-Zone Metacomet

Like most things in this ongoing Metacomet saga, the East Providence City Council meeting on Tuesday night took forever, ending in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. 

When it was finally all said and done, the Council voted 3-2 in favor of re-zoning the Metacomet property.

However, Marshall’s plan to put a hotel on the property was rejected. 

Earlier in the week, the Facebook group Keep Metacomet Green issued a lengthy statement calling for the EP City Council to reject the re-zone.

It is unclear what the next steps for Metacomet are or when any sort of construction will begin.

As GolfNewsRI reported back in April, the East Providence City Council voted against eminent domain and for developing the property. 

That came a month after the clubhouse was demolished.
