1/10/2013 Costa leading effort to address Park and Ride
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Doreen Costa (R-Dist. 31, North Kingstown, Exeter) is working closely with the Department of Transportation to ensure commuters in her district continue to have access to free parking in the wake of the possible sale of the current Park and Ride lot located at the intersection of Routes 102 and 2.

“I have been working with the DOT and looking at every option available to ensure that free parking continues to be available to my constituents,” said Representative Costa. “I have been in constant contact with Bernie Frezza, DOT legislative liaison, since the issue arose and continue to work diligently for my constituents. It is my goal to have DOT establish a new, free lot for commuters should the current property be sold.”

Recent reports indicate that CVS is interested in purchasing the property.

Said Representative Costa, “I have always been here 100 percent for constituents and will continue to be. I am happy to meet with them to discuss this matter or any other issues they have in my district.”
