A redevelopment agency is responsible for creating and overseeing implementation of redevelopment plans in “blighted and substandard” areas. This redevelopment can lead to economic growth, employment opportunities, and creation of areas that present a favorable living environment.
(“Blighted and substandard” refers to language in Chapters 31-33 of Title 45 of the Rhode Island General Laws, the Redevelopment Act of 1956).
This database is intended as a useful resource for town managers, planners, local governments, developers and interested citizens alike by providing links to existing ordinances in Rhode Island municipalities. However, we do not distinguish between the quality of different ordinances, rather, our database serves as an information clearinghouse. Therefore, we do not necessarily endorse the content and wording of every ordinance.
If you know of a correction or addition, please notify John Flaherty, Director of Research & Communications.
