Growth Centers Concept Plans for Rhode Island


Date Published: December 2011


This land use plan for 2025 endorses the formation of smaller regional centers and the emergence of new centers for growth. The adopted future land use map from 2006 calls for a statewide network of centers of various sizes – state, regional, city, town, and village interconnected by infrastructure corridors, supported by employment centers, public services, framed by greenspace and includes all municipalities at one level or another. Greenspace, special places, centers of all sizes, and transportation corridors are all essential elements in solid land use planning and implementing the future land use vision.
