NEWPORT CITY – In an effort to save the so-called Red Barn on Coventry Street from destruction, the city council decided Monday evening to give local resident Frank Knoll, of Northern Views LLC, more time to find another use and location for the structure.
The city owns the barn and has offered to let Knoll take it, if he can move it.
Newport City can't do anything with the barn because of it's location in the city's wellhead protection area and the city has no use for it.
