Have a say in how our neighborhoods are developed and how our hard earned tax dollars are spent. Please donate today to help CODDER 02806 see this effort thru!CODDER 02806 is a Barrington grassroots organization that has been fighting for our community since May of 2012 to prevent construction of the Palmer Pointe housing development that will abut the environmentally sensitive Palmer River.
THE NEWS MEDIA HEADLINES CLEARLY TELL A STORY:"Misappropriation of Spencer Trust Fund resources by providing money to support Low to Middle Income Housing (LMIH) endeavors."
"Providing LMIH tax subsidies that will burden our community through use of the 8% tax abatement program."
"Ignoring objectives raised by the community due to a poorly developed affordable housing plan."
"Lack of concern for protection of ecologically sensitive areas, particularly the Palmer River and surrounding coastlines."
CODDER 02806 is not opposed to Low to Middle Income Housing (LMIH) but it must be implemented in a manner that is not overly dense and isolated. Instead, LMIH should be responsibly integrated within the community, consider protection of our water bodies, and protect the "health and safety" of our residents by considering traffic congestion and the well being of pedestrians and neighbors.
CODDER has hired legal counsel and has managed to further prevent progression of construction for Palmer Pointe by enacting litigation in the Rhode Island Superior Court. CODDER has managed to raise 70% of the funds necessary to finance the litigation process due to the generosity of concerned Barrington citizens.
We are asking that you continue to help us take this fight to the end by making a much needed contribution. Your contribution will benefit you and all of Barrington by helping us defeat construction of this ill-advised project. Please stand with us!
