Brickley's Ice CreamIce Cream Shop in Narragansett, Rhode Island
Can be busy but worth the wait. Great cones made in store (...the aroma is fantastic)
Just can't say enough about how much we love Brickley's
Summer is a long day at Scarboroug
changed :( Instead of chocolate chunks, small chocolate chips replaced the chunks. Also, these chips had very little chocolate flavor. It seems that all of the "chip" flavors had been replaced with these flavorless
I have been so impressed with the thoughtful responses (in support and against) expressed relative to the the beach policy letter we wrote. It would be my hope that the Town leadership consider these thoughts and arrive at some sort of compromise that will deliver a more welcoming attitude to all , residents and visitors alike. We want everyone to enjoy our communities and for them to feel like they are wanted and valued. I believe the Council is working hard to get there and with more feedback maybe they will reconsider modifying the new policy.
THANK YOU EVERYONE !!
So in fairness to the Narragansett Town Council I've been told there had been a work session (or sessions) on the beach policies during the fall. I was not in attendance. My bad !
Had I been aware of these meetings I would have been there and will be sure to do so this fall.
Having said that, it doesn't mean I can't have a position on the issue which is what I have stated in the email to the council members....
I still feel that the policy thereby eliminating non-resident beach passes should be reconsidered. As explained to me today by one of the Council members, this is an effort to stop some of the unruly behavior by youth pass holders. So they decided to eliminate the season passes for ALL non-residents. There is nothing to stop anyone (including aged 12-17) from going to beach and purchasing a day pass so I don't get how getting rid of non-resident passes eliminates this issue. This is a bit of throwing the baby out with the bath water. I'm sure there are lots of responsible, mature and well behaved non-residents who would still like to be able to purchase a seasonal pass but now will not be able to do so.
So just to be clear as I understand it ,going forward if you are a non-resident you will now be required to first pay a $10 daily fee which will require you to first go to the sales window (with your gear in tow having had to park across the street) and then enter the beach through one of the official entry points. You will no longer have your seasonal pass and simply go directly to the beach.
I think we can do better.
Really appreciate all the great feedback regarding our Town Council letter. Three of the members have gotten back to me with their thoughtful responses. Thank you.
If you feel strongly about this issue I would encourage you to contact the Council and let them know.
Letter to Narragansett Town Council:
Dear Narragansett Town Council Members,
My wife Chris and I own Brickleys Ice Cream located on Boston Neck Road. We have been in that location since the year 2000. During the last 18 years we have seen many changes in policy regarding beach parking, parking passes etc. Seems each new Council has their own ideas on what is best for the beach and town residents. I respect that. The latest change, however, is a mistake in my humble op...
Really hope the Narragansett Town Council will reconsider it's new policy regarding seasonal beach passes for non-residents. We have written the council and posted the letter below.
