The East Greenwich Planning Board recently voted to approve a new subdivision at the end of Princess Pine Drive off Taggart Court. The 79-acre parcel which borders both West Greenwich and Exeter will be known as Highland Woods.
The owner, GSA Properties, LLC, has teamed up with DiPrete Engineering and Blish & Cavanagh LLP to design and permit the subdivision. The plan calls for 25 new lots with five off-site deed-restricted affordable units to be provided per the Town’s Inclusionary Zoning code. The property is zoned with a 2-acre lot size minimum. In addition, Princess Pine Drive and Tipping Rock Drive will be extended and connected, and two new roads will be constructed.
“By combining GSA’s vision with the Town’s regulatory requirements, we were able to produce an approved subdivision that both the client and Town are happy with,” said Audie Osgood, Senior Project Manager at DiPrete Engineering.
DiPrete Engineering is providing site/civil engineering, survey, and wetlands assistance. The team also received permits from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and the East Greenwich Department of Public Works.
