Ancients and Horribles Parade will go on after all

May 14, 2013

GLOCESTER – There will be an 87th July 4th Ancients and Horribles Parade in Glocester this year thanks to Michael L. DeGrange and dozens of other residents who have answered the town’s call for help.
DeGrange, who has a long history of community service and volunteerism, has agreed to chair the Ancients and Horribles Parade Committee, which just a couple of weeks ago nearly disbanded because there were not enough members to hold a legal meeting.

Zoners nix Stadium condo plan

May 14, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Despite a request from the applicants to table the proposal for fine-tuning, the Zoning Board has unanimously rejected developer Leszek Przybylko’s plan to convert the Stadium Building into 21 owner-occupied condos.
The proposal represented a $1.3 million investment in a deteriorating landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but the operators of the adjoining Stadium Theatre were hotly against it, arguing that low-cost housing would drag down theatre business.
The zoners apparently agreed, killing the plan on a 5-0 vote.
