Dispute continues over Block Island marina expansionPosted on
Environmentalists last week filed appeals to block the expansion of Champlin’s Marina in the Great Salt Pond on Block Island, The Providence Journal reports.
In February, Superior Court Judge Netti Vogel allowed Champlin’s to expand 195 feet into the Great Salt Pond, which some say would damage the environment.
After an evidentiary hearing, she reversed an administrative decision made by a divided Coastal Resources Management Council that denied the marina’s bid to expand.
Friday’s appeals were filed by the Conservation Law Foundation and other objectors who say Vogel erred on several points of law.
