Register online for 2019 Smart Island Housing Forum

Join the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission (AIPC) as we plan for a smart housing future for the Aquidneck Island region! As the Island municipalities, their economies, and demographics continue to evolve, addressing existing and new challenges and opportunities in housing will determine whether Aquidneck Island remains an economically sustainable community and great place to live.

Together with our partners – Connect Greater Newport and HousingWorksRI – and with the support of sponsors including the Community College of Rhode Island, BankNewport, the Newport County Contractors’ Association and Discover Newport – the AIPC will bring together the diverse Aquidneck Island community to craft housing actions and policy options to allow all Island residents to live, work, and thrive.

Be a part of creating a sustainable Island future by joining us on March 15th for the Smart Island Series: Envisioning the Housing Future for Aquidneck Island, at the Community College of Rhode Island – Newport Campus).
