Build-out Analysis

The build-out analysis we commissioned from Sasaki & Associates is complete. Its projections are sobering; if development and conservation levels continue as projected, all of the unconserved land on Aquidneck Island will be developed. ALT will present the report to the three municipalities this winter. Read the full report here.
