BUILDING MORATORIUM

****UPDATE:  The Narragansett Town Council voted unanimously to institute an emergency building moratorium ordinance for sixty (60) days on 01-21-2020 for all new construction. The Washington County Superior Court issued a Consent Order on Friday 01-31-2020 amending the emergency moratorium ordinance by prohibiting enforcement in R -40 and R-80 zones. Additionally, it narrowed the scope of the emergency moratorium by limiting its application further stating that the moratorium “shall not apply to the issuance of building permits allowing new structures that are four or less bedrooms, or building permits for existing structures seeking approval to increase the number of bedrooms to a maximum of four.”****
