CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JUNE 4-10, 2020 CUMBERLAND 3 CUMBERLAND – The town now has a new historic district, the Landmark Buildings Historic District, allowing officials to put various scat- tered sites of importance under one more manageable umbrella instead of creating individual districts for each one. An ordinance approved by the Town Council on May 20 also places the 1825 Lewis Tower House at 2211 Mendon Road, a "significant historic structure," as Town Solicitor Kelley Morris Salvatore stated, into the new district. "This will provide a level of pro- tection to that house," said Morris Salvatore. "It does not ensure that the house will not be demolished." Everything the council approved for the old home was conditional on other boards' approval, including the Zoning Board's approval the next day of the dimensional relief needed to divide the property into two parcels and the Planning Board's pending approval of a plan for the property. Planning and Community Development Director Jonathan Stevens said this has been a two-year process to save the old home with its rare southern architecture. Stevens said officials feel the build- ing is not at the point of needing to be demolished, and while the new designation doesn't 100 percent guar- antee that it will remain standing, it provides a great amount of protec- tion and a process any future owner would need to go through if they wanted to demolish the home. Morris Salvatore suggested that the council approve the change contin- gent on the owner of the property relinquishing their existing demolition permit upon approval of a final plan by the Planning Board. The council ended up going with that require- ment. Mayor Jeffrey Mutter said historic preservation is an emotional issue for a number of people who are intimately interested in preserving historic homes in town. Dividing the property into two par- cels to make a renovation more palat- able due to potential profits from a second lot "is a nice compromise," he said. There were a number of people with creative ideas and the patience required to come to a solution where everyone wins, he said, acknowledg- Cumberland creates Landmark Buildings Historic District, adds Tower House By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com See HISTORIC DISTRICT, Page 8 BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY The LEWIS TOWER HOUSE is now part of a new historic district designed for scat- tered but important sites around Cumberland. 20" Wind Machine® Fan 6202139 Reg. $44.99 2000 Mendon Road Cumberland, RI 02864 401-333-9855 www.depaultshardware.com JUNE RED HOT SALE Now through June 30th Hours: 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday - Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday Ace SmartFLO Max® 50'x5/8" Premium Garden Hose Limit 2 at this price.
