Planned Navy ‘prison fence’ angers residents

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Residents of Overlook Point and Redwood Farms are raising objections to the location of a new Navy “prison fence,” which abutts residential properties.

Residents of Overlook Point and Redwood Farms are raising objections to the location of the Navy's planned fence, which abutts residential properties. 

An example of a large chain link fence with razor wire can be seen above.

The residents are petitioning the Town Council to request the Navy move the planned fence to its original 70-year-old location.

According to residents, the Navy’s newly proposed fence is currently planned to go through sheds, gardens, and even a deck post. The new fence will even block access to a driveway and stop within 10 feet of a condo’s doorway.

The Overlook Point and Redwood Farms residents will bring their cause to the Town Council at Monday’s meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
