Today, the City of Warwick and Alta Altitude broke ground at 2119 Post Road, the former Laz Parking, for construction of 214 apartments. Meanwhile, not that far away, the former Sheraton Hotel will soon be converted into 178 affordable apartments. These projects are just the tip of the sword here in Warwick. Just down the street, two hotels, Woodspring Suites and Echo Suites are already in the permitting process. Not far away on Jefferson Blvd, Sky City Center, a project with 297 apartments along with a restaurant and café are almost through the process. Another apartment development has been proposed near Kilvert Street. Additionally,  145 dwellings will also be built on former surplus city buildings that we have sold. All of this new development will not only enable more people to live in this beautiful city, but it will bring new businesses, jobs and improve our local economy.

The Highway Department is at City Park Beach doing everything they can to improve it for the summer season. The Highway Chief asked to post his apologies for any inconvenience and disturbance on this beautiful day, but the work must be done.

Colonel Bradford E. Connor, and the men and women of the Warwick PoliAce Department, are saddened to announce the passing of Retired Officer Herbert Mulligan. Ret. Officer Mulligan honorably served the citizens of the City of Warwick for 20 years, retiring in 1995. Warwick PD wishes to extend its sincere condolences to Ret. Officer Mulligan’s family and friends, along with all those that served with him.

Now some people really know how to complain about a pothole. This resident sent in his complaint with the first picture. After the repair he sent in the second picture. I won’t name him but I do want to thank him for giving us all a chuckle.

 It was an absolute honor for Mayor Picozzi to attend today’s Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon honoring dozens of volunteers at the Pilgrim Senior Center. These men and women have tirelessly helped raise money for our center, helped serve lunches, answer phones, work in the gift shop, and so much more. Thank you so much for volunteering your time. We appreciate you all!

Camille Vella-Wilkinson State Representative/District 21, along with Mayor Frank Picozzi, will be hosting a ceremony at City Hall on Memorial Day. “Memorial Day is a day to reflect upon the great sacrifices made by the men and women who served our country, ordinary people who rose to meet extraordinary challenges, bravely sacrificing their own safety for their nation,” said Vella-Wilkinson, a retired naval officer. “They — and their families — paid a tremendous toll, one that makes it possible for us to be here today.” The event will take place on Monday, May 27, at 10 a.m. at the World War I monument in front of City Hall, 3275 Post Road in Apponaug. Veterans who attend are asked to wear a hat, shirt or jacket representing their branch of the service. Memorial Day finds its origins on May 30, 1868. Originally called Decoration Day, it was set aside as a time to decorate the graves of Civil War veterans. The first observance was encouraged by Gen. John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans. Since 1970, Memorial Day has been observed on the last Monday in May, which this year is May 30. By law, U.S. flags fly at half-staff until noon, when they are raised to full-staff.

Today we pause to honor and remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.

The City of Warwick held a Memorial Day wreath-laying ceremony this morning at the World War 1 monument at City Hall. Mayor Picozzi reflected on how often he will hear people say that Memorial Day is not about cookouts or going to the beach. The Mayor truly believe that the souls that made the ultimate sacrifice, that lost their lives defending our freedom and liberties would be pleased to see us enjoying the life that they have given to us.
