(Pawtucket, RI) -- The city of Pawtucket is putting the kibosh on a transfer station expansion and relocation plan. City Council members unanimously approved a resolution last week to oppose the plan to build an expanded station on Concord Street and move the existing facility from Grotto Avenue. Opponents cited property value and quality of life concerns. The resolution was passed a day after the General Assembly approved legislation requiring state officials to consider the community impact of new transfer stations before they are approved.
