Thank you for visiting our web page. 

During February 2017, the Newport City Council approved the final City of Newport Comprehensive Land Use Plan.  The Plan was then forwarded to the State of Rhode Islands Department of Administration, Division of Planning for final review to ensure consistency with State requirements.  On May 3, 2017, the State informed the City of Newport that the Plan was certified as consistent with the goals, findings, and intent of State law.

The adopted Comprehensive Land Use Plan can be downloaded by clicking on the "Library" menu and selecting the "Documents & Reports" menu item.  You can also click here to jump to that page.
