SOUTH KINGSTOWN - The latest South Kingstown Comprehensive Community Plan, updated every five years, maintains the "village-centric" planning philosophy as a model for the town's planning, land use, housing and economic development.
The village-based philosophy has three primary assets: involved and proactive citizens with diverse backgrounds, a rich history and abundant natural resources.
The importance and adherence to these assets as goals has been upheld since the initial 1992 Comprehensive Community Plan.
Vincent Murray, South Kingstown director of planning, presented the updates to the plan at the planning board's meeting Tuesday. His presentation marks the start of the formal local approval process of the plan.
The plan "reinforces our villages as the building blocks for community life and our planning efforts," Murray indicated in his presentation.
