Historic District Commission

The Narragansett Historic District Commission was created to help develop an ordinance and associated policies focused on the preservation of structures of historic and architectural value. The Historic District Commission works to regulate the construction, alteration, rehabilitation, repair, moving, and demolition of such structures. The goal of the Commission is to help safeguard the heritage of the Town by preserving districts and structures which reflect elements of the Town's cultural, social, economic, political, and architectural history. Historic District Commission members also serve as House Doctor Consultants, a panel of historic construction experts providing free consultations on renovations, restorations, or repairs.
