Planning Commish Tuesday: American Yacht Violation, Yogurt Shop, Rye Golf Messes with Tidal Wetlands

Apparently clubs and wetlands don't mix…

At the planning commish Tuesday night the American Yacht Club is getting zapped for a wetlands violation and the Rye Golf Club is attempting to get permission to mess with tidal wetlands.

In other news the old Chase bank at 100 Purchase Street looks like it is becoming a yogurt shop. We had too many banks anyway…
