ALT announces a series of free online presentations titled “Citizen Planning 101,” with one event focused on each of Aquidneck Island’s three municipalities. The workshops will be led by GrowSmart RI, a non-profit consultancy that works for sustainable and equitable economic growth. The events will provide participants with information about the land use planning process and will inform them about ways to advocate within their planning and zoning boards, city and town councils, and other decision-making bodies.
The first event, on July 21, will be geared to Middletown residents; the second, on August 31, to Newport residents; and the third, on September 29, to Portsmouth residents. A fourth workshop on October 20 is open to all islanders and will include a presentation of best practices in land use planning and zoning, in particular related to conservation and how communities can best allow for economic growth and development while still preserving open spaces.
THIS REGISTRATION LINK IS ONLY FOR THE SEPTEMBER 29 EVENT. Please see the other dates to register for the Newport and Middletown events.
