Purpose

  
In accordance with Chapter 26, Title 45 of the General Laws of Rhode Island, the Housing Authority of South Kingstown was established on April 24, 1961, to provide and maintain low income housing and housing for the elderly. Activities of the Housing Authority should reflect the needs and goals identified in the Housing Element of the Comprehensive Plan.

The members are appointed by the Town Council and their activities are coordinated through the Housing Authority Office. The Housing Authority should serve as a forum for discussion of special housing needs, and for review of neighborhood impacts resulting from the siting of special housing facilities.
