13. Due to its recognition as an important estuary, Narrow River has been the focus of
many studies over the years including the Narrow River Special Management Plan
(SAMP) by The Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) in 1987
and the Narrow River Stormwater Study by ASA et al in 1991 funded by CRMC and the
Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM). Loadings of
TownCouncilMeetingMinutes
August19,2013
Book54Page659

pathogens to the river have prevented it from meeting its designated use resulting in its
inclusion in the DEMs Office of Water Resources 303(d) list. This list includes all
waterbodies that do not meet Rhode Island Water Quality Standards.
Because stormwater is a significant source of the contamination, a study of eleven of the
twelve large stormwater outfalls on the Narragansett side of the river were evaluated by
Fuss & ONeill in cooperation with a committee of local stakeholders including the Town
of Narragansett, Coastal Resource Center, CRMC, Narrow River Preservation
Association, and the Narragansett Conservation Commission with the results published in
the Narrow River Stormwater Abatement Study funded by DEM in 2005. As part of the
Towns MS4 Stormwater license issued by DEM, the Town is required to address these
problems. Since the study, the Town has constructed stormwater quality systems at the
end of Mettatuxet Road, at Edgewater and at Pettaquamscutt Terrace. These efforts have
addressed 5 of the eleven outfalls evaluated. Stormwater quality systems at Circuit Drive
(at Wampum and Montauk) were constructed before the study was done. A significant
portion of the cost of these stormwater improvement projects has been provided by DEM
grants. To facilitate the Towns participation in upcoming grant opportunities, the
Department of Public Works (DPW) requested a proposal from Fuss & ONeill to
provide a proposal for completion of a preliminary design (30% design) for three
additional outfalls at Indian Trail and North and South River Drive in Mettatuxet.
Fuss & ONeill completed the 2005 evaluation and provided complete design and project
oversight of the Edgewater and Pettasquamscutt Terrace projects. Their team of
TownCouncilMeetingMinutes
August19,2013
Book54Page660

professionals led by Dean E. Audet, PE, Senior Vice President, are uniquely qualified to
continue this work. Funding is available in the Public Works Major Maintenance
Account, 19-730-7680, Storm Drainage Program.
Matthew M. Mannix moved, Susan Cicilline-Buonanno seconded and it is unanimously
so voted to APPROVE the proposal for professional engineering services to complete
preliminary designs for stormwater BMPs for Indian Trail and Mettatuxet 3 & 4
catchments (under South and North River Drive) with Fuss & ONeill, in the total
amount of $31,689.00 and to authorize the Interim Town Manager to sign the
Authorization to Proceed.

Matthew M. Mannix aye, J ames M. Callaghan aye
14. The parks department is seeking approval to permanently close the Clarke Road
pool by purchasing and installing processed gravel to eliminate potential public liability
with the existing structure. The Town purchased the Camp J ori property in 2002 and the
pool was one of many amenities on the property at the time of sale. The Town operated
the pool from 2005 through 2011 with maintenance and improvements costing
$289,416.35 over the seven year period. In 2011 the underground water service lines to
the pool were leaking extensively forcing the town to fill the pool on a continuous daily
basis to offset the extensive loss of water from the lines. In was determined in 2012 that
due to the age of the pool, not being ADA accessible and the projected cost to either
TownCouncilMeetingMinutes
August19,2013
Book54Page661

excavate and attempt to repair the service lines a second time or deal with the daily water
loss that the pool should close.
With the pool closed for the past two seasons, rain storms fill the pool with rain water
creating a liability for the various vacation camps operated by the Parks and Recreation
Department and the general public on the property. The pool continues to be pumped out
to minimize these liability concerns. The pool while in operation was an asset to the
community, however without a clear funding source to replace the pool the permanent
closure is the only option available at the present.
Susan Cicilline-Buonanno moved, Matthew M. Mannix seconded and it is so voted to
APPROVE the request from the Parks and Recreation Department to close the pool at the
Clarke Road Camp permanently by removing the fiberglass liner and filling the concrete
pool space with processed gravel. Glenna M. Hagopian questioned the cost of closing the
pool. It was noted that it would be work done in house and it would be the cost of the
gravel however that has not been estimated at this time. It was noted that it has not been
used for two years.
Douglas E. McLaughlin aye, Susan Cicilline-Buonanno aye, Glenna Hagopian aye,
Matthew M. Mannix aye, J ames M. Callaghan aye
15. Over the years there have been numerous requests to prohibit smoking on the
Narragansett Town Beach. Currently, there is a voluntary smoking ban that mirrors the
State of Rhode Islands smoking policy. The current ordinance prohibits smoking and
other uses of tobacco products at any athletic or recreational facility owned or leased by
TownCouncilMeetingMinutes
August19,2013
Book54Page662

the town, including the town beach during scheduled youth events. This amendment
would prohibit smoking at the town beach at all times.
Susan Cicilline-Buonanno moved, Glenna M. Hagopian seconded and it is unanimously
so voted to INTRODUCE, READ, PASS and ACCEPT as a First Reading, An Ordinance
in Amendment of Chapter 46 (Miscellaneous Offenses), Article I (In General), Section
46-9 of the Code of Ordinances of the Town of Narragansett entitled Smoking and use
of tobacco products prohibited during youth events held at town athletic and recreational
facilities, and at other designated public places.
Douglas E. McLaughlin aye, Susan Cicilline-Buonanno aye, Glenna Hagopian nay,
Matthew M. Mannix nay, J ames M. Callaghan aye
Resident Karen Shabshelowitz and Meg Rogers speak on the matter.
17. The Town Council needs to schedule a work session in October to discuss the
timeline for various bond requests for town capital projects. The Town Council will be
asked to give direction as to whether the projects should be considered separately or

RECOMMENDATION:

That the Town Council hold a public hearing on the Petition from Colbea Enterprises
LLC d/b/a Shell/Seasons to operate a 24 hour gasoline station/convenience store at
1015 Boston Neck Road, Narragansett, Rhode Island.

And That the Town Council approve the miscellaneous license application for a
victualing and holiday license and approve or deny the extended hours of operation.

SUMMARY:

Colbea Enterprises LLC d/b/a Shell/Seasons has requested to be opened additional
hours from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. in order to operate a 24 hour convenience store.

In accordance to RI State Law 5-24-1 a public hearing is required before the town
council in order to receive permission for the additional hours of operation.

This property has supported a gas station/convenience store with an automobile repair
shop at this location for more than twenty (20) years. The applicant was before the
Planning and Zoning Board of Review in early spring to request to demolish the existing
1,410 square foot automobile repair shop and food mart and to construct a new one-
story 35 x 57 convenience store 1015 Boston Neck Road. The existing automobile
repair use is now discontinued but the existing pumps, Pump Island, canopy and
underground storage tanks will remain as they exist.

The applicant is requesting to operate 24 hours in order to sell gasoline and brewed
coffee at the newly constructed convenience store.

NARRAGANSETT INDUSTRIAL
PERFORMANCE COMMISSION
Date: June 26, 2013
To: Rich Kerbel, Acting Town Manager
From: Industrial Performance Commission
RE: Di ssolution of the Industrial Performance Commi ssion
This memorandum is sent on behalf of the entire Industrial Pe1formance Commission
requesting the Town Manager investigate the necessary steps to take to di ssolve the fPC.
The LPC takes its charge very ser iously and makes this request having discussed and
debated the merits of remaining in place or being removed. It has been concluded by
consensus of the Commi ssion that its responsibilities have become obsolete over the years
with the passage of stricter State of RI Fire Codes and Building Regul ations.
Past and present Fire Chiefs have pointed out on several occasions that the review of new
or expanded businesses in our industrial areas is addressed in much more detai I during the
Fire Department ' s " Site Review" than the IPC currently conducts. Documentation of
materials and manufacturing processes that the Fire Department must receive is today
much more extensive than it was back in the time when the fPC was founded and the Fire
Department is better trained to consider what, if any, hazards a pa1t icul ar business activity
may pose. As a result there now seems to be an overlap in jurisdictional authority. The
Commission members agree unanimously that it seems duplicative to continue thi s
review procedure into the future.
For these reasons the Industrial Performance Commission humbly req uests the Town
Manager move forward with the Town Council to carry out and complete any act ions
necessary to dissolve this Commi ssion and remove any pertinent regulations from
Chapter 12 of the Zoning Ordinance that currently require action of this Commi ssion.

MEMORANDUM

DATE: August 16, 2013

TO: James M. Callaghan, President, Honorable Town Council
FM: Terence Fleming, Chairman - Narragansett Planning Board

RE: Recommendation addressing the requested Zoning Text Amendment dissolving the
Industrial Performance Commission


PROJECT BACKGROUND

At the request of its members, the Industrial Performance Commission has requested the Town
Council consider dissolving the Industrial Performance Commission. Since the 1980s this
Commission has ben tasked with reviewing applications for construction and/or expansion of
business activities targeted to the IA and IB industrial zones. These applications have primarily
focused on the south Ferry Industrial Park and the small industrial area on Walts Way. In recent
years the State of Rhode Island has updated and expanded the requirements for industrial
development review through Building, Electrical and Fire Codes regulations. Today the Fire
Marshal and the Building Official review a wide array of components related to industrial
development before permits are issued. Specific documentation of compliance with the new
codes must be in hand prior to issuance of a certificate of occupancy. As such, it is the position
of the IPC membership that their role has been reduced to a duplication of the responsibilities of
others. For this reason they have requested this amendment.

PLANNING BOARD FINDINGS

On August 20, 2013 the Planning Board considered this request and provided the analysis and
recommendation below. In attendance were Terry Fleming, Dr. J oseph ONeill, J ohn Hodnett,
Stephen Glazer and Vin Indeglia.

Generally, the Planning Board analysis of this request defers to the wishes of the IPC
membership. The Fire Chief and Fire Marshal have both weighed in on this matter as have the
designees from the Planning Board and Zoning Board. In addition the IPCs two public
members have concurred with the others that their role has been diminished and share in
questioning the relevance of retaining a volunteer board to replicate the work of trained
professionals.



CONSISTENCY WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

The considerations the Planning Board have addressed in the past regarding map amendments
involve the appropriateness of the change to the affected area, sufficiency of infrastructure to
serve the new zone, consistency with proposed plans for the area and if the change will promote
2
the development of the Town as envisioned in the Comprehensive Plan. In the case of a
proposed text amendment these tests must be adapted slightly to:

(1) Whether the elimination of certain passages of the Zoning Ordinance is appropriate to the
zoning districts in which it has served.;
(2) Whether other arrangements are in place to ensure no void in the enforcement of
industrial performance provisions;
(3) Whether the eliminated text leaves the Zoning Ordinance internally consistent with other
development regulations for the industrial zones;
(4) Whether the proposed amendment will promote the development of the Town as
contemplated in the Comprehensive Plan

Addressing these standards individually, the Planning Board makes the following findings:

Appropriateness & Enforcement: Eliminating the IPC does not also result in loss of the Towns
industrial performance standards. Section 12.6 will retain all the development standards and
Section 12.7 will retain all the detailed performance criteria regulating industrial uses.
Compliance with these regulations will be handled in the future by the Fire Marshal and Building
Official in the very same manner they regulate all other requirements, (uses, dimensions, buffers
etc.).

Consistency: Regarding consistency with existing development character for the industrial zones,
the Board notes that the IA and IB Zones are dominated by large scale manufacturing,
assembling, and warehousing developments. There are only 2 industrial areas in Town:
South Ferry Road
Walts Way
Because the regulatory standards will remain and be enforced by town officials the eliminated
text will not create any inconsistency with other development regulation pertaining to
development in the IA and IB zones. The elimination of the IPC will only remove an
intermediate step of public review for compliance with building and material management
standards of the Town & State that must be confirmed today by either the Fire Marshal or the
Building. No aspect of the development or its practices will be overlooked.

Comprehensive Plan: In general, the way in which the Town ensures compliance with its
industrial standards is not directly addressed in the Town Comprehensive Plan. The Board
acknowledges the assertion of the IPC membership that their role has become duplicative of
others with more skilled training in matters of noise, dust, smoke, waste, gases fumes etc. The
Comprehensive Plan does not suggest removal of this or any Town Board but does provide
direction for appropriate regulatory standards in the future.
Implementation Item #33 suggests the town Continue to promote appropriate
business development. The Board interprets this element to not only seek business
location in Narragansett that complements the Towns overall character, but also to
encourage the efficient regulation of business development and expansion.
Elimination of a review step covered by trained professionals will further this
objective.
Implementation Item #38 suggests the town Maintain appropriate site design
standards. As noted above the standards set forth in Sections 12.6 and 12.7 will not
be removed or reduced.

3




In summary, the Planning Board has reviewed the proposal and concluded the proposed revision
of Section 12.6, 12.7 and 18.3 to allow the elimination of the IPC while maintaining the integrity
of the Towns industrial performance criteria is an appropriate adjustment of the regulatory
framework in furtherance of the current intent of the Narragansett Comprehensive Plan.


CONSISTENCY WITH PURPOSES OF ZONING

The principal purposes of zoning that relate to this petition involve the following:

Promoting the public health, safety and general welfare.
Providing for a range of uses and intensities of use appropriate to the character of the
Town, reflecting current and future needs.
Providing for orderly growth and development recognizing the use of innovative
regulations and techniques.
Promoting a high level of quality in design and development of private and public
facilities.
Providing for efficient review of development proposals, to clarify and expedite the
zoning approval process.
Promoting implementation of the comprehensive plan.


CONCLUSION / RECOMMENDATION

For the reasons cited above, the Planning Board concludes this proposal has merit to provide a
valuable revision to the Towns zoning regulatory program. Upon motion by Mr. Indeglia,
seconded by Dr. ONeill, the Planning Board voted unanimously to RECOMMEND
APPROVAL of an ordinance dissolving the Industrial Performance Commission.

SUBJECT: A public hearing for the purpose of revising the Flood Hazard Area
Overlay District Ordinance.

RECOMMENDATION:

That the Town Council HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING to amend the text of Chapter 731
of the Code of Ordinances entitled Zoning, specifically, Section 2.2 Definitions, and
Section 4.7 Special Flood Hazard Area Overlay District.

That the Town Council INTRODUCE, READ, PASS AND ACCEPT as a First Reading
the text of amendments to Section 2.2 Definitions, and Section 4.7 Special Flood
Hazard Area Overlay District.

SUMMARY:
This ordinance is proposed to amend the text of the Flood Hazard Overlay Ordinance to
reflect recent changes made to the Flood Maps by FEMA. These changes amend the
maps approved by the Town in 2010.

This amendment is a requirement of the FEMA Map Modernization Process currently
underway for those communities that take part in the National Flood Insurance
Programs (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS). The draft amendments to the
Special Flood Hazard Area Overlay District (Section 4.7) were developed using
guidance from RIEMA and FEMA. Due to time constraints set forth by these governing
agencies, adoption of this ordinance is required by October 10
th
, 2013. The Planning
Board reviewed the revised ordinance text at their August 20, 2013 meeting and
provided a favorable recommendation.

Copy of the draft text (with amendments highlighted) was sent to the Town Council for
review early in the month. Most of the revisions are minor in nature.

Regulation of the development and alteration of such areas is thus in the public interest.
(1) Special Flood Hazard Areas
The Special Flood Hazard Areas are herein established as a floodplain
overlay district (District). The District includes all special flood hazard areas
within the Town of Narragansett designated as Zone A, AE, AH, AO, A99,
V, or VE on the Washington County Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and
Digital FIRM issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) for the administration of the National Flood Insurance Program.
The map panels of the Washington County FIRM that are wholly or partially
within the Town of Narragansett are panel numbers 44009C0114J ,
44009C118J , 44009C192J , 44009C194J , 44009C0202J , 44009C0203J ,
44009C0204J , 44009C0206J , 44009C0208J , 44009C0211J , 44009C0212J ,

October 16, 2013. The exact boundaries of the District may be defined by
the 100-year base flood elevations shown on the FIRM and further defined
by the Washington County Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report dated October
16, 2013. The office of the Building Official is responsible for floodplain
management. The FIRM and FIS report and any revisions thereto are
incorporated herein by reference and are on file with the Town Clerk,
Building Official, and the Department of Community Development.
(2) Administrative Provisions
a. Building Permit - All proposed construction or other development within
a Special Flood Hazard Area shall require a permit.

requires permits for all projects that meet the definition of
development, not just building projects. Development projects
include any filling, grading, excavation, mining, drilling, storage of
materials, temporary stream crossings. If the construction or other
development within a Special Flood Hazard Area is not covered by a
building permit, all other non-structural activities shall be permitted by
either the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council
and/or the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management as
applicable. Therefore if another State agency issues a permit, the local
building official must have the opportunity for input and keep a copy
of the respective permit in their files. The application for a flood
hazard development permit shall be submitted to the Building Official
and shall include:
1. The name and address of the applicant;
2. An address and/or map indicating the location of the construction
site;

sewage disposal facilities, water supply facilities, areas to be cut
and filled, and the dimensions of the lot;
4. A statement of the intended use of the structure;
5. A statement as to the type of sewage system proposed;
6. Specification of dimensions of the proposed structures;
7. The specific datum used for all elevations;
8. The elevation (in relation to mean sea level) of the lowest floor,
including basement, and if the lowest floor is below grade on one
or more sides, the elevation of the floor immediately above;
9. Base flood elevation data for all new, relocated or substantially
improved structures;
10. The elevation (in relation to mean sea level) to which the structure
will be floodproofed;
11. The description of the extent to which any watercourse will be
altered or relocated as a result of the proposed development.
c. Prior to the issuance of a building permit, the applicant shall submit
evidence that all necessary permits and approvals have been received from
all government agencies from which approval is required by federal or
state law.
d. A permit fee (based on the cost of the construction) shall be required to be
paid to the Town of Narragansett and a copy of a receipt for the same shall
accompany the application. An additional fee may be charged if the code
enforcement officer and/or board of appeals need the assistance of a
professional engineer.
e. Disclaimer of Liability. The degree of flood protection required by this
Section of the Ordinance is considered reasonable but does not imply total
flood protection.
f. Severability. If any section, provision, or portion of this regulation is
adjudged unconstitutional or invalid by a court, the remainder of this
Section shall not be affected.
g. Abrogation and Greater Restriction. This Section of the Ordinance shall
not in any way impair/remove the necessity of compliance with any other
applicable laws, ordinances, regulations, etc. Where this Section of the
Ordinance imposes a greater restriction, the provisions of this Section
shall control.

above the highest adjacent grade to at least as high as the depth
number on the FIRM. On FIRMs without a depth number for the AO
Zone, structures shall be elevated or floodproofed to at least two feet
above the highest adjacent grade.
c. In Zones A1-30 and AE, along watercourses that have a regulatory
floodway designated on the Washington County FIRM encroachments
are prohibited in the regulatory floodway which would result in any
increase in flood levels within the community during the occurrence
of the base flood discharge.
d. All subdivision proposals must be designed to assure that:
1. Such proposals minimize flood damage;
2. All public utilities and facilities are located and constructed
to minimize or eliminate flood damage; and

a. Floodway Data. In Zones A, A1-30, and AE, along watercourses that
have not had a regulatory floodway designated, the best available Federal,
State, local, or other floodway data shall be used to prohibit
encroachments in floodways which would result in any increase in flood
levels within the community during the occurrence of the base flood
discharge.
b. Base Flood Elevation Data. Base flood elevation data is required for
subdivision proposals or other developments greater than fifty (50) lots or
5 acres, whichever is the lesser, within unnumbered A zones.
c. Base Flood Elevations in A Zones. In the absence of FEMA BFE data and

MEMORANDUM

DATE: August 15, 2013

TO: James M. Callaghan, President, Honorable Town Council
FM: Terence Fleming, Chairman - Narragansett Planning Board

RE: Recommendation on proposed Zoning Text Amendments updating Section 4.7
Special Flood Hazard Area Overlay District


PROJECT BACKGROUND

At the direction of FEMA the Town is charged with making amendments to the Flood Hazard
Overlay District to conform with new Flood Insurance Rate maps (FIRM) which will become
official in October. These maps update the recent maps provided to the Town in 2010.

PLANNING BOARD FINDINGS

On August 20, 2013, the Narragansett Planning Board considered amendments to Section 2.2
and Section 4.7 of the Zoning Ordinance in regard to the Special Flood Hazard Overlay District.

In attendance were: Terence Fleming, J oseph ONeill, Stephen Glazer, J ohn Hodnett and Vin
Indeglia.

The Board reviewed the draft ordinance provided by the FEMA staff which was edited to fit
Town formatting. This time, unlike in 2010, the changes are few and focus on Building Permits,
Use of Structures and Definitions.

Most administrative provisions and use regulations have been left unaltered.

Notable changes suggested in the 2013 draft include:
1. Permits will be required for non-structural activities through either RIDEM or CRMC
for anything not requiring a local building permit.
2. Prohibition on changes in use from business to residential for any structure located in
a floodway.
3. Specific regulations for use of space below the lowest floor.
4. Definitions:
a. Coastal A-Zone
b. Development
c. Freeboard
d. Limit of Moderate Wave Action
e. Lowest Floor
f. Special Flood Hazard Area
g. Structure (particularly for insurance purposes)
h. Substantial Improvement
2






CONSISTENCY WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

The Planning Board considered the following elements to determine the proposals consistency
with the Comprehensive Plan.
(1) Whether the revision of certain passages of Section 4.7 of the Zoning Ordinance is
appropriate to the areas prone to flooding;
(2) Whether Town infrastructure will be affected by the text revisions;
(3) Whether the revised text will be consistent with proposed plans in flood prone areas;
(4) Whether the proposed amendment will promote the development of the Town as
contemplated in the Comprehensive Plan

Addressing these standards individually, the Planning Board finds:

Appropriateness: The revisions proposed by the FEMA staff to the Town regulations will result
in new policies for implementation. Projects requiring no building permit will be required to
have RIDEM or CRMC approval before being authorized to proceed. The Building Official will
have to adjust his review policies to implement the new definitions of freeboard , lowest floor,
structure and substantial improvement. These are considered appropriate actions to assure
compliance with the updated FEMA regulations.

Infrastructure: The Board finds impacts on traditional infrastructure such as water and sewer
lines will be minimal. Non-traditional infrastructure such as wetland complexes, marshes, rivers
and streams will be positively affected due to the more stringent regulation of alterations not
requiring a building permit.

Consistency with Proposed Plans: The Board finds revision of text regulating Narragansetts
Flood Hazard Overlay district will have little effect on the development or implementation of
proposed plans. In the larger sense the new regulatory provisions will be accommodated in the
pending Comprehensive Plan. In the site-specific sense the new regulatory provisions may affect
development design by requiring buildings to be constructed higher out of the ground, thus
reducing the potential height of the structure. It may also affect certain sites with pending or
anticipated subdivisions by forcing greater mitigation measures to be implemented where site
alterations in the floodway will become regulated. Specific building design may also have to be
altered to provide added freeboard in areas previously outside the floodway.

Comprehensive Plan: In general, the Board finds these proposed text revisions will work
positively to effect the implementation of the comprehensive plan. The Comprehensive plan
includes several goals and objectives targeted to management and mitigation of flood waters and
runoff. Specifically:
Strategy #1 under the heading of Land use and Buildout directs the Town to
Continue to protect and enhance the Towns natural resources
Strategy #2 under the heading of Land use and Buildout directs the Town to
Continue to protect resources through overlay districts and other regulatory
tools.
3

In summary, the Planning Board has reviewed the proposed revision of Section 2.2 and 4.7 to
update the Special Flood Hazard Area Overlay District and find the new definitions and
regulatory provisions to be an appropriate adjustment of the regulatory framework in furtherance
of the current intent of the Narragansett Comprehensive Plan.


CONSISTENCY WITH PURPOSES OF ZONING

The principal purposes of zoning that relate to this petition involve the following:

Promoting the public health, safety and general welfare.
Providing for orderly growth and development recognizing:
o the natural characteristics of the land, including its suitability for use based on
soil characteristics, topography and susceptibility to surface water or
groundwater pollution.
o The values and dynamic nature of coastal and freshwater ponds, the shoreline,
and freshwater and coastal wetlands.
Providing for efficient review of development proposals, to clarify and expedite the
zoning approval process.
Promoting implementation of the comprehensive plan.


CONCLUSION / RECOMMENDATION

For the reasons cited above, the Planning Board finds this proposal has merit to provide a
valuable revision to the Towns zoning regulatory program. Upon motion by Mr. Glazer,
seconded by Mr. Indeglia the Planning Board VOTED to RECOMMEND APPROVAL of the
the attached updates to the Special Flood Hazard Zone Overlay District regulations.

Port of Galilee) Pre-Engineered Building to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder,
Pascack Builders, Inc., in the total amount of $463,400.00.

SUMMARY:

In 2011, the Town applied for and received a $600,000 grant from the Department of
Homeland Security for the purposes of desi gning and constructing a Multi-Jurisdictional
Port Facility in Galilee for the US Coast Guard and the Town to store our rapid response
vessels. This building, to be constructed on l and owned by the Town (adjacent to the Point
Judith Water Tank) will provide safe and hardened (hurricane-resistant) storage for trailered
boats during times of immediate storm emergency (when the boats have to be pulled from
the water) and during the off season. This location will allow for rapid response once the
immediate storm danger has passed.

This project has been advertised and bid twice; both times, the bid prices exceeded the
available grant funding. We have modifi ed the project scope and method of delivery
(design\build format) to better fit the avail able budget, while keeping in mind the original
project intent of providing secure marine storage.

Request for bids was advertised in the Narragansett Times, solicited and posted on the
Town of Narragansett and State Purchasing Division websites. Three vendors were
solicited and six responded. The attached spreadsheet lists the results from the
solicitation.

See the attached interoffice memo for additional information. The award is for the base bid

Funding for this project will come from the 2011 DHS Port Security grant. This grant is
somewhat unusual in that there are no matching funds required by the Town the grant is
designed to pay for 100% of the project costs.

RECOMMENDATION:

SUBJECT: North Cabana Reconstruction Project

RECOMMENDATION:

That the Town Council schedule a work session to discuss the North Cabana
Reconstruction Project.

SUMMARY:

The North Cabana building at the Narraganse tt Town Beach was heavily damaged by
Hurricane Sandy, and subsequently demolished by the Town. In the Spring of 2013, the
Town Council awarded a contract to Frank Karpowicz Architects to design a replacement
building. While the building footprint is essentially limited to the former buildings size, the
new facility would be elevated above the fl ood zone and would be constructed of more
sustainable, low maintenance materials.

Before proceeding with the construction bidding process, the staff seeks guidance from the
Town Council as to the final building plan and financing strategy associated therewith.
Please refer to the attached Project Summary report from the Engineering Department.

The staff will be available for a work session at the Councils convenience. We would
respectfully request an expedient date, as there will be a significant amount of work to
do in order to complete the design, obtain a CRMC Assent, bid, and then construct the
project before the 2014 beach season.

built in 1992. The North building was essentially at grade (sand level), while the other two (2) buildings were on pilings,
elevated above the 100 year flood zone elevation.
The North Cabana building at the Narragansett Town Beach was significantly damaged during Hurricane Sandy, and was
subsequently demolished by the Town. Storm surge damage to the other two (2) buildings (elevated as noted above) was
confined to the stairs and ramps. New ramps and stairs were subsequently constructed in the Spring of 2013 under our
property insurance coverage.
In the Spring of 2013, the Town Council authorized the staff to retain the services of an architectural\engineering firm to
design a replacement facility for the North Cabana building. The design essentially mirrors the former building in size and
shape, but is elevated to comply with current flood zone regulations, and is proposed to be constructed of more advanced
materials (i.e. composite decking, fiberglass panels). These two (2) areas are significant cost drivers, but are necessary (in
the case of the flood zone regulations), and appropriate (in the case of using sustainable, low maintenance materials). The
preliminary design and cost estimate are now both complete, and are ready to be presented to the Town Council for
review.
After the construction has been completed, the North Cabana buildings vulnerability to a storm like Sandy will be
essentially the same as the South and West Cabanas the stair case leading to the beach could be damaged or destroyed in
a major storm event. On a related note, we are saving the cost of building another ADA-compliant ramp for the new
building (at a savings of over $150,000) by linking the new building (above the flood elevation) to the existing two (2)
buildings, which have a new ADA ramp system in place as of 2013. As a trade-off to this capital expense, we will have to
reconfigure the units in the existing South Cabana building (adjacent to the ramp) to allow for ADA-accessible units. As
said units are slightly larger in size than conventional units, we will end up with a net loss of one (1) unit over the entire
three (3) building complex; going from eighty-four (84) units to eighty-three (83) units. We believe this trade-off to be
appropriate, given the capital cost of building a second ramp system.
Background Financial
The demolition cost for the North Cabana was $12,500.00. That full amount was reimbursed to the Town by the RI
Interlocal Risk Management Trust (Trust) under our property insurance coverage.
The Town had secured flood insurance though the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for this building. That
coverage, through FEMA, is based on the depreciated building value, rather than the replacement value. NFIP established
the depreciated value of the former building at $294,824.33, and we have received that amount. We are under no
obligation to reconstruct the building the insurance proceeds did not include any conditions or restrictions. Through our
business interruption insurance with the Trust, we were compensated for the value of the lost rental income for the 2013
beach season (note that we did charge a parking fee for each unit that recovered $12,000.00; coupled with the lost rental
reimbursement from the Trust of $30,000.00, we recovered our budgeted annual revenue of $42,000.00). Finally, although
the NFIP policy excluded ancillary components (i.e. ramps and stairs), the general building coverage through the Trust
did include a layer of coverage for NFIP-excluded items, and the Trust paid for the replacement stairs and ramps. We paid
an additional out-of-pocket amount to upgrade to sustainable materials.

Project Summary (continued)

Fall 2013

The contract for architectural\engineering services for preliminary and final design, bidding services, and limited
construction administration services is in the amount of $21,200.00.
Pro Forma
The Town has historically applied a straight line basis capital asset depreciation method when accounting for fixed assets
in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR, or the audit). Our auditing firm has used a life cycle range of
25-65 years for public buildings. Factors that influence building life are location, construction (i.e. wood frame, masonry,
steel, etc.), commitment to maintenance, etc. For a wood frame beach-front building, this pro forma will use 25 years as
the building life.
The North Cabana building includes twenty-four (24) rental units. Although we will end up with net loss of one (1) unit
for the overall complex (as noted above, due to ADA reconfigurations), this pro forma has been prepared based on
constructing twenty-four (24) new units. The construction estimate includes the ADA reconfiguration work in the South
Cabana building. At an estimated capital replacement cost of $685,000 (based on the August 2013 estimate from our
architect, along with a 10% contingency), and applying a 25 year anticipated building life, the annualized capital cost
becomes $27,400.00. On a per unit basis, this annual depreciation charge becomes $1,142.00. Annual operation and
maintenance costs (including parking lot maintenance, pre- and post-season plumbing work, beach grading, etc.) are
estimated at $5,000. Thus, the cost to be recovered would be $32,400 per year, or $1,350 per unit per year. Applying the
insurance proceeds decreases this number see chart below.

$685,000.00 ($294,824.33) $5,000.00 25 24 $20,607.03 $858.63

There are two (2) other potential claims that we have placeholders for related to the insurance proceeds for the building;
first, as the NFIP policy is an Actual Cash Value (ACV) policy, we can claim a certain amount of the depreciation that
was held ($18,412.44) if the depreciated items are replaced (in other words, if we re-build the building we can claim
this amount); and second, we have a preliminary claim under the NFIP policy for up to $30,000 in Increased Code
Compliance costs this is a clause that allows us to recover certain costs related to upgrading the new building to meet
current codes. In our case, that includes elevating the building above the base flood elevation. Again, this only comes into
play if we reconstruct the building, and we will have to document specific code compliance costs. Applying these values
to the pro forma would simply reduce the annualized cost per unit and the payback period, although not by a significant
amount.


Narragansett Town Beach North Cabana Replacement Project
Project Summary (continued)
Page 3
Fall 2013

The FY 2013-14 adopted beach fee schedule set the annual cabana rental at $1,750 per unit. However, this fee includes (2)
parking passes and six (6) guest passes. These additional items carry values of $100.00 and $150.00 respectively, under
the current fee schedule. As such, the portion of the cabana rental that can be assigned to the cabana itself is $1,500.
At face value, the above calculations show that the current fee structure will support the proposed project. However,
absent a detailed cost center analysis of the beach operations and maintenance, there are attendant costs beyond capital
that go into a successful cabana operation. For example, daily beach raking, parking control, lifeguards, restroom
maintenance, supervision, etc. are all tasks that support the cabana operations, yet they are not individually assessed
against a particular user group or portion of the beach property. Strategically, the Beach Enterprise Fund needs to recover
a significant portion of its operation and maintenance costs through guaranteed revenue, as they are (obviously) a weather
dependent operation. Excess revenue remains with the Enterprise Fund to support capital projects and asset protection, in
lieu of borrowing.
This report does not address cabana or other beach fees for the 2014 season, nor does it address the outstanding borrowing
from the General Fund that was used to pay for non-insured storm damages after Hurricane Sandy.
A second method of presenting the North Cabana pro forma is through a straight simple payback calculation. Using the
same estimate (with and without insurance proceeds) of capital costs and Operation and Maintenance (O & M) costs (over
the projected building life) and the annual revenue (portion assignable to the cabana building only - $1,500.00 per unit
times 24 units) yields the following (without any annual adjustment in revenue):
SimplePayback(withoutapplyinginsuranceproceeds)
Estimated Insurance O&M BuildingLife Units CostplusO&M Annual Simple
BuildingCost Proceeds (years) overBuildingLife Revenue Payback(yrs.)

$685,000.00 $0.00 $5,000.00 25 24 $810,000.00 $36,000.00 23
SimplePayback(withtheapplicationoftheinsuranceproceeds)
Estimated Insurance O&M BuildingLife Units CostplusO&M Annual Simple
BuildingCost Proceeds (years) overBuildingLife Revenue Payback(yrs.)

$685,000.00 ($294,824.33) $5,000.00 25 24 $515,175.67 $36,000.00 14

Obviously, adjusting the revenue by increasing the rental rates for the new units would soften the simple payback period.
As an intangible part of this review, it should be noted that the current waiting list (as of the 2013 season) for a cabana
includes 234 residents, and the approximate average waiting time is between 10-15 years, based on recent turn-over
history. That would seem to support the reconstruction of the North Cabana building.

Fall 2013

Whats Next?
Once the Town Council is comfortable with the preliminary design, cost estimate, and pro forma, the staff will direct the
architect to complete the final design and bidding documents. We will need to submit the project to CRMC for an Assent
as we are replacing a building that was destroyed by a storm event, within the same footprint, we anticipate that this
permitting process will be of short duration. The project can then be advertised publically for bids. Depending on the
CRMC permit issuance and the Fall\Winter weather conditions, we hope that the facility will be ready for occupancy for
the Summer 2014 season; however, this is a fairly compressed timetable. The architect has suggested that the complete
construction process will take roughly six (6) months, and we would need to have the project complete by the middle of
May for a 2014 seasonal occupancy.
