What does the future hold for Aquidneck Island? Aquidneck Island Land Trust shares details of build-out analysis

Hotel Viking

Aquidneck Land Trust (ALT) hosted a public program on Wednesday night to share details of a build-out analysis of Aquidneck Island by Sasaki Associates.

The analysis presented two possible scenarios for the island: (1) What will be the impact to Aquidneck Island if current development and sprawl trends continue status quo? (2) What will be the impact to Aquidneck Island if a conservation and smart-growth focused approach is taken?

Attendees heard a short presentation on the analysis, followed by breakout groups for feedback and discussion.

A final report of the analysis will be made publicly available later this year.


What’s Up Newp is free to read, and always will be, but we need your support to keep it that way. 


Attached is the hand-out from ALT last night — Sasaki and associates presented two scenarios — one if current development trends continue the second if there’s a “Plan and Protect” effort.
