Newport city council OK’s Cliff Walk plan, restrooms


The Newport City Council has endorsed scaled-back plans by the state for repairs to the Cliff Walk and also approved a contract for new permanent restrooms near one entrance to the walk. The Newport Daily News reported that the Wednesday vote means that the state will now take the repair plan to the Rhode Island Coastal Resource Management Council. Once approved, the state can put the project out to bid. The repairs are being made after Superstorm Sandy damaged several parts of the walk. The restroom approval means permanent restrooms will replace portable toilets at Forty Steps.
