If 19 housing units were constructed in four buildings on a single lot at 70 and 78 Narragansett Ave., traffic would increase by roughly 3 percent, according to a study by the applicant's development team.
During a public hearing last week in front of a packed crowd, the planning commission heard about the effects the proposed project across from John A. Murphy's law office would have on drainage and traffic. According to attorney Deb Foppert, who represents the applicant, pets, lights, noise, landscaping and building height also were concerns that surfaced during a meeting with neighbors.
The hearing, after two hours and 40 minutes, was continued to 7 p.m. June 19.
