One nearing the starting line, one in the works.

With most of the approvals for the Cherry Hill Lane development lined up, the Block Island Housing Board turned to a new phase of that project, and learned about another planned affordable apartment project at its most recent meeting.

The new project was unveiled in a letter from the Harbor Church asking the Housing Board to endorse a plan to renovate the third floor of the church building into four one-bedroom apartments as affordable rental units. The church requested that a “letter of sponsorship” from the Housing Board be sent to the Zoning Board, which member John Spier agreed to draft.
