WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THIS PROJECT?

We want to hear from you about how this project can improve quality of life for everyone in South Kingstown.  Here are some of the goals town staff have been pondering:

  • South Kingstown will be a place where people can live their entire lives!  Children born here should have the chance to grow up here, go to school, start a family, and retire here, without having to leave for communities that are more affordable or that have more types of homes that suit their needs.

  • South Kingstown will increase its housing stock (in number and diversity of type) to make the town generally more affordable and accessible.

  • South Kingstown will continue to have homes that keep young families with children in town.

  • South Kingstown will have housing, mixed-use, and commercial development that boosts tax revenues.

  • South Kingstown will have the types of housing needed to meet the needs of residents at every stage of life.

  • Housing options should be within reach for people making less than an upper-middle class income.

  • South Kingstown’s homes should be accessible, with a portion of new housing created with universal design principles and support for accessibility retrofits for existing homes.
