Aligning Narragansett's Zoning Laws: NTRA's Push for Ordinance Amendment

1 Minute Read

As Chair of the Narragansett Town Residents Association (NTRA), I recently presented a letter to the Narragansett Planning Board, advocating for a key change in our town's zoning laws.

Dated November 27, 2023, my letter proposes aligning our Four Unrelated’s Ordinance with the newly enacted Three-Student Ordinance.

Drawing from my experience as the former chair of the Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Zoning, I argue for the necessity of this amendment: limiting the number of unrelated individuals in a single-family residence to three. This proposal is grounded in recent legal precedents and the strong support it has received from our community members.

I believe this change is essential for maintaining consistency in our local ordinances and addressing the community’s evolving needs.

I invite you to read the full details of this proposal in my letter, as it outlines the broader context and significance of this change for Narragansett.
