NK Council approves Wickford Art lease

October 9, 2014

NORTH KINGSTOWN–On Monday night the North Kingstown Town Council approved two changes to the town’s lease with the Wickford Art Association. The existing lease, set to expire in 2038, already includes language that allows voters and the Art Association to agree on 10-year extensions if the current terms of the lease remain intact. Should the town decide to rewrite the terms of the lease, however, the Art Association asked for first-right-of-refusal, allowing them the opportunity to accept or reject the new lease before it is put out to the general public.

“We usually do run low, but more towards the end of October, so we are about two weeks ahead of schedule,” said Christine Heart-Skaggs, director of Public Welfare in Exeter.
