Many new homes block views, create sight lines into personal spaces within adjacent residences, or block sunlight into yards. Existing structures should be considered before issuing permits. Also, with the great weather we have here in this city, I think more yard space should be encouraged. Not sure how to achieve this, but it would be nice to start a dialogue. We also need to encourage solar power, so why do we allow new homes to block sunlight for existing homes. It seems to be the norm, especially downtown. I think most of us enjoy the sunshine. That's why we're here!

Thank you for sharing your idea. This issue has been of on-going concern in the community. The City Council has considered a mansionization ordinance with new requirements to mitigate some of the possible impacts which you describe. There will undoubtedly be proposed modifications to development standards in the future so residents sharing their ideas will continue to guide this evolution.

Yes that's right, they should know what are the benefits and disadvantage of new construction in their City. In your community, you've better to have for you to play online or download games for your people or all links to download.

I agree with you Patsy J Moore , before doing a new construction you should consider lots of things. You can ask concrete contractors in westerly ri if your need more explanation about the effect of new construction.
