Rocky Point to be purchased by the state

The State’s offer to purchase the remaining 82 acres of land at Rocky Point in Warwick for $9.65 million has been approved by the US District Court. 

If there are no appeals after 30 days, the land will be bought using funds from the $10 million Open Space Bond, approved by voters in 2010.

Once the state owns the land it will be developed for public recreation using $2.5 million set aside by Governor Lincoln Chafee in his 2014 budget proposal.
