St. Clair Annex, Royce plans are up for town review


WESTERLY — Plans to serve alcohol at St. Clair Annex, Charles Royce’s Avondale Road project, and a Weekapaug Road property owner’s request for permission to tear down a house and replace it with a taller modular one are on the Zoning Board of Review’s agenda for a meeting Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.

James Nicholas, the owner of the iconic Watch Hill spot known for its ice cream and lobster rolls, is seeking a special use permit that would allow St. Clair Annex to serve beer and wine. at the Bay Street eatery. The zoning board had been scheduled to deliberate on the application in January but the hearing was postponed becaused of questions about whether neighbors of the Bay Street property had been properly notified of the plans.

Eventually, Nicholas has said, a second floor could be added to the restaurant, allowing for the development of rooftop dining with a raw bar. Plans for the second floor addition have not been submitted to the town.

Royce is seeking two variances and modification of a previously issued special use permit for a historic renovation and preservation project at his 2 Avondale Road property. The two variances are required because plans call for locating the principal residence and a converted historic schoolhouse, which will be used as a caretaker’s residence, closer to Grassland Way than normally allowed under zoning regulations.

The special use permit must be modified to reflect changes made to a historic barn on the property. The barn was outfitted with a kitchen, wine cellar, and bathroom without approval by the town. Royce has offered to agree to a limitation on how the barn is used. Under the proposed limitation, no commercial use of the barn would be allowed; all use of the barn would be limited to what is allowed in an accessory structure of a single family house.

Peter and Patricia Daigle, the owners of a house at 67 Weekapaug Road, are seeking a variance to construct a modular house that would be 6 feet 3 inches taller than the 35-foot maximum height limit established by the town’s zoning regulations for the area. The Daigles plan to raze the existing 731-square-foot, three bedroom house and replace it with a 2,080 square foot, two-story house.
