Why isn’t there a map that is accurate and up to date?

The Water and Planning Departments acknowledge that is a fair question and something that we need to address. 

The map has not been modified since 1998 and we agree that the map should be carefully reviewed to ensure that it accurately reflects the overlay zoning language. 

In the past the Town has not had access to geographic information system capabilities (GIS) necessary to create and more importantly, continually update, a map such as this. Recently North Kingstown has upgraded its GIS capabilities to an extent that we now can produce and maintain such a map and we will work toward that goal.
