>>Controversial Pawtucket Park Purchase Approved Narrowly By City Council

(Pawtucket, RI)  --  The city of Pawtucket is moving forward with the sale of Morley Field, a neighborhood park valued by local residents as their only green space.  The vote at an October 19th meeting was 5-to-4 to OK the purchase and sale of about half the field to a developer with plans to pave it as a warehouse parking lot.  The other parcel was gifted to the city, meaning the sale would require special legislation from the General Assembly.  And because a grant from the National Park Service paid for the original purchase, the city will have to submit a replacement green space.  The Valley Breeze reports state Representative-elect Jennifer Stewart and Pawtucket City Councilor Clovis Gregor are planning a rally outside City Hall Thursday at 4 p.m.  They say Morley is an invaluable oasis for a densely-populated corner of the city.
