The Newport Daily News: Middletown Town Council to review elderly housing options

The former Berkeley-Peckham School building on Green End Avenue is one site targeted

MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — It's not a question of if more affordable housing for seniors is coming to Middletown, but when.

That is the message from Town Council President Robert Sylvia, who said it is time for the community to do more to help its elderly population.

“I know that we all feel that way,” Sylvia said. “It's going to happen and it will come to fruition. We haven't decided where and when, but it's a lock.”

At a recent meeting, the council was briefed by Rhode Island Housing CEO Barbara Fields about the different opportunities available to the community, should it opt to pursue such a project.

While no decisions were made, the council targeted the former Berkeley-Peckham School building on Green End Avenue, next door to the town's senior center, as the most viable option.
