Monday Five: Zoning and Stadium Building, Nixle, Water Flushing

Welcome to another Monday, and check out these things to know:

 

Zoning Board - The Woonsocket Zoning Board of Appeals meets tonight, 7 p.m. in Harris Hall at City Hall. Among the things on their agneda, the board will . The building needs waivers on parking restrictions, setbacks and on how far condos can be from their neighbors — in this case, the Stadium Theatre — before the plan can be put in place. The owner intends a $1.25 million project to convert the space into 21 condo units.

Water flushing through June - Woonsocket's Water Division will flush city water pipes between April 22 to June 28 in the south-west part of the city, starting at Manville Rd. Unidirectional Flushing Program (UDF) is a method of cleaning the water mainlines through a network of flushing sequences with the water being discharged from a fire hydrant. In some cases, homes may experience a temporary drop in water pressure and/or discolored water. If your water is discolored, run cold water until it turns clear. (If you run hot water, the mineral deposits can settle into your water heater.)

Nixle - Woonsocket Police and Fire Departments  want to send a reminder about Nixle.  During the snowstorm residents received a phone message with information from Nixle. They are encouraging all residents and interested parties to sign up for Nixle’s OPT IN notification alerts.  You will be able to choose what messages you want to be informed of including emergency alerts, public safety updates, or community event information. You can receive Nixle messages on your cell phone, tablet, or other device.

Community garden -The GrowUp Community Garden has several plots still available for rent for community members who wish to grow food or herbs. The garden, which is beginning its fifth season, is located adjacent to the Woonsocket Harris Public Library on land donated by the Pawtucket YMCA . The cost for renting a 4’x10’ raised bed is $20 for the season. As a condition of the rental contract it is requested that 10% of the plot’s yield be donated to one of the participating local food pantries. For more information, please contact Wendy Pires at 401-235-6096 or wpires@famresri.org. Information about the garden is also available by visiting  the Family Resources Community Action website at www.famresri.org.
